Area 51 by Annie Jacobsen

 It is the most famous military installation in the world. And it doesn't exist. Located a mere seventy-five miles outside of Las Vegas in Nevada's desert, the base has never been acknowledged by the U.S. government-but Area 51 has captivated imaginations for decades. Annie Jacobsen had exclusive access to nineteen men who served at the base for decades, and unprecedented access to fifty-five additional military and intelligence personnel, scientists, pilots, and engineers linked to the secret base. Jacobsen shows us what has really gone on in the Nevada desert, from testing nuclear weapons to building super-secret, supersonic jets to pursuing the War on Terror.

Vaclav imagines their story unfolding like a fairy tale, or the perfect illusion from his treasured "Magician's Almanac, " but among the many truths to be discovered in Haley Tanner's wondrous debut is that happily ever after is never a foregone conclusion. One day, Lena does not show up for school. She has disappeared from Vaclav and his family's lives as if by a cruel magic trick.
