This book is as much a history book of the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s as it is anything else. Sara Taber's father was indeed a spook, a covert spy for the CIA and was assigned to Japan, Taiwan, Washington, DC, Holland, and Borneo during his children's young life. He and his wife didn't tell their children until they were in high school that he was a spy.
If you grew up in any part of this era, like I did (she's a bit older than me but I could relate to much of what she experienced), I think you'll find this book fascinating.
