Editorial Reviews

This novel has plenty to please both sexes; the descriptions of life from Tony's point of view make Blitz and the life of evacuee seem very real and will appeal to young teenage boys. These chapters would also work well as an introduction to World War Two and the evacuation of children. Mallie's story is slower and discusses aspects of modern life as a child of a single parent trying to be carefree but with responsibilities and restraints.
