Wow. Just wow. This book is staying with me, and you should go read it. Themes present: anorexia, british cousins, new broken families, war and starvation. Oddly, I found it light and fairly amusing. It's brilliant. Go read it. ( )

Exceptional: gripping, horrifying, funny, convincing and ultimately very, very moving. ( )
  whatmeworry | Apr 9, 2022 |
As I read this I found myself thinking 'maybe that could have been better' but looking back having finished it I'm not sure any of it could have been. It pulls the reader along by the scruff of the neck and has enormous emotional impact. Very, very impressive. ( )

A compact tale of a displaced US teen's route through a war in England with cousins. She finds home and family only to be scattered across a torn landscape. Well told, but too much a deliberate tear-jerker for my taste. ( )
  quondame | Mar 15, 2022 |
This is another book that I found compelling enough that I just HAD to keep reading it, but in the end I just didn't like it. It was dark and sad, which is not something I every like. There was a bit oddness to the narration where there was no punctuation regarding things people said and I found that a little off-putting. And finally, there was a weird jump in the story I just couldn't appreciate. I felt it was done poorly and made me more frustrated than anything. I couldn't put it down, but I wish I had never picked it up, honestly. I only gave it 3 stars because it was very compelling and if you don't mind the "Downer" book then you might enjoy it. ( )

Fifteen-year-old Daisy, an anorexic, acerbic New Yorker, falls instantly in love with her English cousins' farm and with her English cousin Edmond. Idyllic love story abruptly becomes horrific survival tale when an unnamed enemy power invades the country. A captivating and deeply satisfying first novel. Review 9/04.

You can imagine it was the social event of the day, everyone competing for the worst piece of news.
All in all I felt a little guilty about the fact that while us kids had been living the Life of Riley, a whole bunch of other people had been scurrying around like lunatics trying to keep the Social Fabric from Unraveling and my personal belief was that there were too many problems to think about and not enough people to sort them out.
Staying alive was what we did to pass the time.
