One of the best books ever
on 17 October 2001
This book is fantatic, because before it I had never even heard of the hunger in Ireland, and now I know a lot. Phyllis, even though she is a lot better off than most families in her area still struggles with the rest of them when the potato famine comes, and she also has to deal with the acceptance of love and death at the same time. It is also good because it tells you about the conflict between the two religions and the English government, and it made me understand more about Irish history, and encouraged me to read more books about it. This is one of my favourite books, I really recommend it or any other of the My Story ones to anyone.
