Format: Paperback
Maud and Jeff are two teenagers, thrown together by protesting the Vietnam war. They feel a special connection over both having lost a sibling because of the war -- Maud's sister, Lucy, in an explosion of a science lab at the University of Minnesota, and Jeff's brother in Vietnam.

These events cause them to forge a bond and lead them to a commune where they try to come to terms with their losses and the war around them.

Strong, a little controversial, and wholly authentic, COME IN FROM THE COLD candidly captures life in America circa 1969 -- all of the tension, apprehension, hope, and love.

Ms. Qualey has crafted a read that is not only inspiring but also historically educational. It's so entertaining, though, you won't even realize it. The novel accurately mirrors all of the passion, urgency, and even violence of the times.

Come in from the Cold vividly portrays the turmoil of life in the 1960s, during the Vietnam War. Teenagers are fascinated by the war, draft dodgers, and protesters, but there's not much good fiction for them. Come in from the Cold is excellent. Another good YA novel about the war, from a different perspective, is Ellen Emerson White's The Road Home.
