A quick but satisfying read
on 9 February 2012
Fans of Maureen Lee will be familiar with the setting and theme of this short story.
Set in Liverpool, Amy's Diary follows Amy Browning and her family through the Second World War.
The war breaks out on Amy's 18th birthday. After receiving a gift of a lovely notebook from her sister, Amy decides to keep a diary and write a bit each week until the war is over. Amy records how the war affected her family and friends as well as finding her own way through a dangerous time.
I found this a simple but satisfying story. In 105 pages a lot happens to Amy and her family. I liked the characters and I was able to get a good sense of what it was like to live during that time.
