When I began reading this book it was truly a shock. I didn't expect it to begin with that introduction. As it goes along you start realize how weirdly a war saved the girls life. Interesting book for it being about history, I would have liked more pov. ( )

Ten-year-old Ada and her six-year-old brother Jamie are evacuated in autumn 1939 from London to Kent. Ada has a club foot and has been held prisoner by her mother all her life. The evacuation changes Ada’s life completely – as well as Susan Smith’s, the woman who took them in reluctantly, while still mourning her friend Rebecca.

Ada outs a German spy she sees coming ashore. When Mam (the children’s mother) finds she has to pay for their upkeep if they are to stay in Kent, she rushes them back to London, where she proclaims her disgust for both of them. They escape a bomb in London by going to a bomb shelter, and Susan comes looking for them the next morning, although their mother doesn't.

This was a wonderful book for children, with a window into some many circumstances in other children's lives: untreated ailments, abuse, being taken from their parents to a strange place, being bombed - all quite realistic during that war.

We could do with a little more of this attitude to endure the world's current woes:
"Jamie began to cry. 'I want to go home,' he said. 'I don’t want a war. I don’t want bombs. I’m scared. I want to go home.' . . .
Miss Smith sighed, She took her handkerchief and wiped the tears and snot off Jamie’s face. 'No one’s asking us what we want,' she said." ( )

I didn't want this one to end!
As you may have noticed... It took me forever to finish reading it.
But in the good way, I enjoyed it very much .
And I cried a lot too.

Magnificent work. Loved the book. I really loved the whole thing.

Heartwarming story. It was the right book for the right mood; right at this specific moment of my life.

I don't even usually like to read WWII books in general, but I highly recommend this one. ( )

This is going to sound like a negative endorsement for this book, but it's not. But trust me when I say, This book is HEAVY. It's well-written and engaging, but it is also deeply upsetting and delves into the psychological trauma from childhood abuse.

I am glad I read this book, and I think Bradley is proficient at exploring the secret lives of children, but if you were abused emotional or verbally as a child, consider this your trigger warning. Because it is unflinching in its depiction of recovery from trauma, neglect, and cruelty. ( )
