Rhoda, Straight and True takes place in Brooklyn in 1953 in the midst of the cold war. There were rumored spies in the neighborhood and 13 Mancy kids to avoid. Rhoda anticipates an exciting summer, and then she begins to doubt some of the gossip told her. This would appeal to any child of elementary school age. It is as relevant now with our multi-ethnic neighborhoods as it was in 1953 with our fear of the Russians. 181 pages.
