The 1960's: Rebels

by Dorothy Hoobler Tom Hoobler

THIS SEVENTH VOLUME OF THE Century Kids follows two rebels--in the best sense of the word. The first is Chuck, the great-great-grandson of the patriarch, Lionel Aldrich, whose family we have followed through five generations of the twentieth century. His rebellion, so typical of the decade, is against unfair authority. The second rebel is Sojie, who takes a stand against the established practice of the times as she returns with her mother to the South to participate in a lunch-counter demonstration demanding equal service for blacks. Both young people typify the awakening social consciousness that characterized the decade. AS IN THE EARLIER CENTURY KIDS volumes, the events and artifacts of the decade provide a backdrop for the narrative. The 1960s are a particularly inspiring decade with the growing success of Dr. Martin Luther King's nonviolent protest movement--yet it was a tragic decade as well, as young idealists grow to admire young President John F. Kennedy, only to see him brutally assassinated. IN ADDITION TO AN EXCITING STORY, the Hooblers provide an historical afterword, explaining some of the more interesting aspects of their research into the decade, as well as a timeline outlining what was going on in the world in which the story unfolds.

A 52-Hertz Whale

by Bill Sommer Natalie Haney Tilghman

"It appears to be the only individual emitting a call at this frequency and hence, has been described as the world's loneliest whale."—Wikipedia So here's how it all starts: James, a high school freshman, is worried that the young humpback whale he tracks online has separated from its pod. So naturally he emails Darren, the twentysomething would-be filmmaker who volunteered in James's special education program back in middle school. Of course, Darren is useless on the subject of whales, but he's got nothing but time, given that the only girl he could ever love dumped him. And fetching lattes for his boss has him close to walking out on his movie dream and boomeranging right back to his childhood bedroom. So why not reply to a random email from Whale Boy? Predictably, this thread of emails leads to a lot of bizarre stuff, including a yeti suit, drug smuggling, widows, a major documentary filmmaking opportunity, first love, a graveyard, damaged echolocation, estranged siblings, restraining orders, choke holds, emergency dentistry...and then maybe ends with something like understanding. See, it turns out that the thing that binds people together most is their fear that nothing binds them together at all.
