The book starts when he is given the choice to either join the army or go to prison, but this family has a better plan - they go on the run. Along the way they are helped by kind, like-minded people and betrayed by other people who think he is just a coward. The family must stay on the move to avoid being split up and life is difficult and uncertain, but never dull! Eventually their luck runs out when Freddie is taken ill and Will is arrested. However Lizzie and Freddy's adventures are not over as Lizzie is not going to wait for the war to end before being reunited with her father!
I loved this book. It is full of adventures and wonderful characters. It's a great read for anyone who read and loved 'Carrie's War' and 'Goodnight Mister Tom'.
Whether you're old or young, if you're looking for a fast paced adventure story that grips you from chapter to chapter I would urge you to pick up a copy.
This book is aimed at the 9 -12 age range and is one of those books that I would find myself recommending to school teachers. If I was still in the classroom, I would definitely use this book as a starting point for the World War II topic often carried out in Year 2. I think it is a wonderfully descriptive story of life as a child during the world, from the viewpoint of a family vehemently against the war.
The characters are beautifully written and the plot shows the sharp realities of war and how it affects families. Before reading it, I had never considered how families coped with the separation, and this book really brings home the difficulties and the heartbreaking emotions caused by children being evacuated. The way families are torn apart by war is such a strong theme throughout the book, that I felt it would be a fine example for the children of today to read, who never seem to realise how lucky they are. I think that today's school children would get so much from reading this book, allowing them to visualise what life was like for someone of their age, during hostile times.Read more ›
