I enjoyed House on Q Street by Ann L. McLaughlin
From Goodreads:”Joey Lindsten is ten years old in 1942 when she and her family move to wartime Washington, D.C., where Joey’s father is working as an atomic physicist. The Lindsten family is under strain, not only because of the pressures of the war and the secrecy that surrounds Joey’s father’s work, but also because he has become involved in a love affair.” Full of wartime songs and radio news, The House on Q Street catches the mood of the war on the homefront as it is felt by a bright, courageous young girl on the verge of womanhood.
