WHEN SIRENS SCREAM
New York : Dodd Mead, 1981
Turner's dad has just been appointed to a citizen's nuclear committee.
The whole town is pro-nuclear power -- the Turners are too. When Ned's
teacher is seen at an anti-nuclear rally, the town gets vicious and fires
the teacher. Citizens break his family home's windows and messes up his
lawn. Ned feels caught in the middle. Why is the town so defensive? Why
are the citizens so threatened by one resident standing up for his beliefs?
What kind of accidents have gone unreported? Will his girlfriend's father
(who was exposed to radiation) be all right? Read "When Sirens Scream"
to find out how Ned and his family and friends cope with the uncertainy
of nuclear safety.
