Description


A page-turning sci-fi adventure set in 1953, featuring a clever girl who, against all odds, must outsmart bullies, the FBI, and alien invaders during the height of the communist Red Scare.

The New York Times Book Review calls Red Scare a “masterly graphic novel debut… tightly wrought, intense, unpredictable… breathtaking action sequences… pacing is remarkable… a virtuosic performance.”

"Red Scare is a brilliant, fast-paced adventure. Action, history, and a tiny bit of fantasy collide in eye-popping panels, loaded with heart." -- Max Brallier, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Last Kids on Earth series

Peggy is scared: She's struggling to recover from polio and needs crutches to walk, and she and her neighbors are worried about the rumors of Communist spies doing bad things. On top of all that, Peggy has a hard time at school, and gets taunted by her classmates. When she finds a mysterious artifact that gives her the ability to fly, she thinks it's the solution to all her problems. But if Peggy wants to keep it, she'll have to overcome bullies, outsmart FBI agents, and escape from some very strange spies!

Praise for Red Scare:

A Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection

"Red Scare is a brilliant, fast-paced adventure. Action, history, and a tiny bit of fantasy collide in eye-popping panels, loaded with heart. Liam Francis Walsh's graphic novel is set in 1950's-era Cold War, but still feels resonant today." -- Max Brallier, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Last Kids on Earth series

"Red Scare recounts a harrowing chapter in our country's history when the fear of Communism, or the fear of being thought a Communist, caused a sort of mass insanity. Walsh's storytelling skills are superb and the drawings are even better." ---- Roz Chast, author of Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, which won a National Book Critics Circle Award and was shortlisted for a National Book Award.

"History, adventure, and fantasy come together masterfully in this beautifully illustrated, imaginative story." -- Terri Libenson, New York Times bestselling author of the Emmie & Friends series

"I love the drawings: Sometimes you turn the page and your jaw drops. The artwork builds this page-turner perfectly!" -- Jeff Smith, New York Times bestselling author of the BONE series

"Red Scare is a blast: Retro action, thrills, and real heart!" -- Rob Harrell, author of Wink
