3.7 Stars (11 Reviews)
Genre: Biographies & Memoirs | Historical Fiction | Teen & Young Adult

What if there had been social media during the Cold War and the Cuban Missile Crisis?

This is not a story told in the usual book format. It is the story of the Cuban Missile Crisis told as if through posts on private social media feeds.

The year is 1962. The Kennedy brothers are in the White House. Nikita Khrushchev is in the Kremlin and Fidel Castro is in the Presidential Palace in Havana, Cuba. For a time, now widely referred to as “the most dangerous moment in human history”, these three men hold the future of modern civilization in their hands as the world teeters on the brink of nuclear apocalypse.

#Houston69: Apollo 11 – When Men Walked on the Moon (Hashtag Histories)
Philip Gibson
5.0 Stars (3 Reviews)
Genre: Professional & Technical | History | Science & Math | Teen & Young Adult

What if there had been social media during the first mission to land a man on the Moon in 1969?

If you were not fortunate enough to be able to witness the entire historic mission as it unfolded, this account will put you believably back inside those eight incredibly tense and dramatic days. The unique social media format of the book allows us to experience all the drama and achievements as if we were following them live, and as if the participants were speaking to us directly in real time. The narrative is based on actual astronaut accounts, NASA transcripts of the fascinating continual communications with the astronauts, broadcasts of the all main TV networks covering the mission and the thoughts of many laypeople observers. The account also includes details that were not publicly available at the time, such as the secret speech to be delivered to the nation by President Nixon should the astronauts fail to return from the Moon. There is an extensive list of major sources at the end of the book.

This is not a book, therefore, written in the usual book format. It is the story of man’s first exploration of Earth’s nearest neighbor, the Moon, told as if in real time in the form of imaginary social media posts by the main participants and observers. By using the fictional (at the time) vehicle of social media, the book is able to give an accurate account of the historic mission, revealing what the people involved in, and those witnessing, the momentous events were thinking, doing and saying at each stage of the mission.

The account covers the entire mission, from the tense build up and countdown to the launch, to the heart-stopping descent to the lunar surface, the first moonwalk, the experiments on the surface, the journey back to Earth, re-entry, recovery and the triumphal reception back in New York.

Their opposite personalities lend to several heated encounters, and Addy finds herself propositioning Quinn for the one thing she never imagined needing … sex.

Offering only her body, Addy tries to keep Quinn at a safe distance from her heart and a world away from her past. Their passion-filled connection makes Addy feel something unfamiliar, alive. But with passion comes more feelings: anger, jealousy, love. When Addy surrenders to the unimaginable and lets go of her past, she’s faced with the impossible … holding on to her future.
