One of the best kids books ever.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Run for Your Life (New Windmills KS3) (Hardcover)
Without a doubt this was my favourite book when I was a lad, and I still treasure my tattered old copy. David Line was the psuedonym of Lionel Davidson, still a well respected novellist. It's the story of Soldier and Woolcott, two lads who witness a murder, and have to go on the run. I particularly liked the bit where they wander through the Norfolk countryside in the snow. It used to keep me on the edge of my seat. The story is so well written and fast moving, I'm sure it will be as popular today as it was in the 70's, when it was filmed for the BBC as Soldier and Me. There was a sequel, "Mike and Me" which was not as good but worth hunting out in the 2nd hand stores. If you can find a copy, "Under Plum Lake" by the same author is a good read.

This was my favourite book too! I am going to order one as I haven't read it for years now. Still remember it vividly.
