Product Description

A Blitz tale full of charm and laughter? YES! Karen brings her hallmark lightness to this war tale of evacuees, secrets and friendship. We’re loving the beautiful cover. (Reminds us of firework displays.) It’s 1940. Like millions of kids, Gloria and her little brother are new evacuees in the country. It’s a safe haven from the London Blitz. But their new home isn’t as cosy as they hoped. Their guardian, Miss Saunders, is strict and severe. The local children are rude and mocking. Yet things aren’t quite as they first appear. Before long, friends turn into enemies – and sworn enemies become lifelong friends…
