Dead Mountain

Item Details

Moving to a new neighborhood means having to make new friends-which makes klutzy Noah more than a little nervous. And even though Mo, the spunky but nosy girl who lives next door, introduces him to her group of friends, he still has to find a way to win them over. Noah can't juggle like Mo, whistle like Peter, or read while standing on his head like Jessica. But can showing off a bizarre housewarming present do the trick? What must he do to impress them before he can call them friends?This likeable new character, with his familiar dilemma, is sure to become a favorite with Johanna Hurwitz's legions of young fans.

The information about the Soviet Era and the hikers is very interesting, however, I found the author didn't ask a lot obvious questions. Of the 88 exposures on the film, were any of them bad? This would help the readers to better judge the last exposure on the film, if it's a picture of something we can't explain or simply bad photography. Can the radiation on some pieces of clothing come from the river? I found the book half interesting and half frustrating and the ending - tornado's? 9 seasoned hikers, who had talked to countless other hikers throughout their lifetime were overcome by a series of tornado's coming down from the mountain top? Why was their tent found still together and everything inside in order?

Excellent book. A non-fiction book that I found difficult to put down. It reads like a fiction murder mystery. Intriguing glimpse into Soviet life in the late 1950's. Highly recommended.
