Sky Is Falling It is the summer of 1940, and all of England fears an invasion by Hitler’s army. Still, ten-year-old Norah Stoakes is shocked when her parents decide to send her and her younger brother Gavin to Canada as war guests. Travelling across the ocean is an adventure, but Norah’s new life in Canada is a bigger challenge than she ever expected. Until, that is, Norah discovers a surprising responsibility that helps her accept her new country and her new home. Looking at the Moon Norah has lived in Canada with the Ogilvies for three years when an Ogilvie cousin comes to spend the summer. Andrew is nineteen, handsome and intelligent, and Norah thinks she may be falling in love for the first time. But even now the war threatens to ruin her happiness... The Lights Go on Again It has been five years since Norah and Gavin arrived in Canada and now that the war is ending, they will soon be going back to England. Norah is eager to see her parents again, but ten-year-old Gavin barely remembers them. He doesn’t want to leave his Canadian family, his two best friends and his dog. Then something happens that forces Gavin to make the most difficult decision of his life.
