There are some really sad passages in this book, which doesn't sugar coat anything while at the same time not over describing the death and destruction that are part of the world that is portrayed. The subject matter means that this may be Secondary School or late Primary School reading matter - there are plenty of themes to think about. I thought that the characters were convincing and likeable - I've read other books by this author and she has a real knack of making you care what happens to both the animals and human characters in her book. It's all beautifully written and I think written with a greater confidence that some of her other novels.
If you've enjoyed Gill Lewis books before I don't think this one will disappoint and if you haven't, you are in for a treat. Highly recommended.
