Product Details


Praise for Cold War on Maplewood Street

“A quietly tense story set during the Cuban Missile Crisis. . . . [Joanna] learns how to muster courage during a time of accelerated, unwanted change. Rosengren’s judicious use of details evokes a strong sense of the 1960s, and while some readers will already be aware of how history played out, they’ll find it easy to share Joanna’s feelings of nervousness, helplessness, and hope.”—Publishers Weekly
