You Are One of Them

Description

Sarah Zuckerman and Jennifer Jones are best friends in an upscalepart of Washington, DC, in the politically charged 1980s. Sarah is the shy,wary product of an unhappy home: her father abandoned the family to returnto his native England; her agoraphobic mother is obsessed with fears of nuclearwar. Jenny is an all-American girl who has seemingly perfect parents. With ColdWar rhetoric reaching a fever pitch in 1982, the ten-year-old girls writeletters to Soviet premier Yuri Andropov asking for peace. But only Jenny’sletter receives a response, and Sarah is left behind when her friend acceptsthe Kremlin’s invitation to visit the USSR and becomes an international mediasensation. The girls’ icy relationship still hasn’t thawed when Jenny and herparents die tragically in a plane crash in 1985.

Ten years later, Sarah is about to graduate from collegewhen she receives a mysterious letter from Moscow suggesting that Jenny’s deathmight have been a hoax. She sets off to the former Soviet Union in search ofthe truth, but the more she delves into her personal Cold War history, theharder it is to separate fact from propaganda.

You Are One of Them is a taut, moving debut about the ways in whichwe define ourselves against others and the secrets we keep from those who areclosest to us. In this insightful forensic of a mourned friendship, Holtilluminates the long-lasting sting of abandonment and the measures we take tobring back those we have lost.
