About the Author
Tom Palmer was a reluctant reader as a child and credits articles about football with getting him into reading. He went on to become a bookseller and then worked in reader development. He is well known for his hugely successful football fiction for Puffin, and is one of Barrington Stoke's top-selling authors, writing about both sport and history with great appeal. He travels all over the UK visiting schools and working with charities, and is well loved across the book trade.

So interesting to find out about different roles, relationships on the front and the overall emotional turmoil of the Great War.
It’s tells the story of Lily, a young fell runner, who travels with her family to stay with her grandparents, so that she can take part in a fell race.
Whilst there, Lily sees how her Gran’s dementia is taking away the person that she knew away, but through the discovery of another fell runners diaries from the First World War she is able to reconnect with her Gran and learn more about herself.
The book is beautifully written, with characters you can believe in and connect with. The artwork on each page helps to make an amazing book even more special.
Read this before scampering off to school one morning.
Best book I have read in the past year.
I also love how brilliantly accessible Barrington Stoke novels are whilst being cracking novels giving children who find reading more of a challenge stories that will engage and excite without patronising them. I have already put my copy in the school library and will be recommending it regularly to my students
