‘A heart-warming story packed with Second World War detail’ – Daily Express
‘Carrie’s War for a new generation of children’ – Belfast Telagraph
Award-winning, bestselling and beloved author Jacqueline Wilson pens an unforgettable story about the confusion and loneliness of a World War II evacuee, with a moving and hopeful friendship at its centre.
September, 1939: At the breakout of the Second World War , ten-year-old Shirley is sent away on a train. She doesn’t know where she’s going, or what’s going to happen to her when she gets there. All she has been told is that she’s going on ‘a little holiday’.
She soon finds herself lodged deep in the countryside, with two boys from the East End of London, Kevin and Archie. But here, living in the strange, half-empty Red House with the mysterious and reclusive Mrs Waverley, the children’s lives will be changed for ever.
‘So good, I couldn’t put it down.’ – Reader review, BookTrust
‘The reigning queen of British children’s fiction, Jacqueline Wilson, turns to the second World War with Wave Me Goodbye . . .The story handles the balance of big worries – the war – with the smaller details of what it means to be separated from one’s family while life still goes on.’ – The Irish Times
