In November 1944, eighteen-year-old June Walker boards an unmarked bus, destined for a city that doesn't officially exist--Oak Ridge, Tennessee. There, June joins hundreds of other young girls operating massive machines whose purpose is never explained. They know they are helping to win the war, but must ask no questions and reveal nothing to outsiders. When the bombing of Hiroshima brings the truth about Oak Ridge into devastating focus, June must confront her ideals about loyalty, patriotism, and war itself.

For fans of The Wives of Los Alamos by TaraShea Nesbit, this title would be a great read alike. This story takes place during WWII at a different top secret location in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Both locations are working on the Manhattan project and towards the same goal.
I thought the characters were well developed and I enjoyed the multiple story lines.
