I think The Loud Silence of Francine Green is an amazing book.Francine finds out who her true friends are and gets a new outlook on communtists. Her best friend,Sophie Bowman,is amazing and should be an insperation,and I don't mean for everyone to go get in trouble with their teachers,I mean if you've got something worthwhile to say,say it.I think this shows that you should stick up for your friends,no matter what.I love this book sooo much and I would reccomend it to anyone who asked.

Growing up in the fifties, under the twin threats of the Red Menace 'Russia's missiles aimed at America's heart!' and McCarthyism 'There are Commies all around us!' is not often a topic in young adult fiction. Cushman's novel about Francine's experiences rings true to one who grew up in that era. Unlike Francine who attended parochial school under the strict eyes of the nuns, I went to public school - but we also, learned to duck and cover and wondered if our neighbors might be pinkos or even card carrying Communists. The way to get along was to keep your head down, conform, keep quiet. Francine finds her voice while still a schoolgirl, unlike those of us who weren't awakened until the Civil Rights marches, the Sexual Revolution or the Hippie Era. Reading The Loud Silence of Francine Green may help today's youth understand their parents' or grandparents' generation, and may lead them to look critically at their own times. For those of us who lived in those times, the book is a thoughtful nostalgia trip.

I read through about page 48, and this book was just really boring. I was hoping it would get better, because it could have been well written with twists and turns, but there was no life in it. I don't recommend this book at all. It's not worth your time.
