A nonfiction thrill-ride for teens that I couldn’t put down – think Edward Snowden for your parents' generation.
From Steve Sheinkin, the award-winning author of The Port Chicago 50 and Bomb comes a tense, exciting exploration of Daniel Ellsberg’s transformation from obscure government analyst into "the most dangerous man in America." On June 13, 1971, the front page of the New York Times announced the existence of a 7,000-page collection of documents containing a secret history of the Vietnam War. The Pentagon Papers, as they were known, chronicled every action the government had taken during that conflict, revealing a pattern of deception spanning 20 years and four presidencies. This provocative book interrogates the meanings of patriotism, freedom and integrity.
