by Elizabeth Levy

First Release:

October 2019

ISBN: 9781250176790

In this middle-grade retelling of one of the biggest scandals to rock our nation, a "fly on the wall" narrator takes us through the trials and tribulations of the Nixon Administration.
Comprised almost completely of primary source quotes (good thing Nixon's recorder was on) and interspersed with contextual narrative, this middle-grade nonfiction tells the story of the Watergate scandal in an extraordinarily immediate way. Written in screenplay format and highly designed, this book is not only easy to read, but also compelling, and a useful study on how to research and use primary source material.
