Product description

The Second World War is over, but Henry is still fighting to make peace with his past. He’s missing his father, who died a war hero, and only the cinema seems to offer relief. Then he finds a film with a mysterious man lurking in its shadows. Who is he? Like an exploding bomb, the answer will shatter Henry’s world. A gripping story with a lovingly-evoked post-war backdrop from the acclaimed author of Goodnight Mister Tom.

    Interesting and different. The main character, Henry may annoy you at the beginning but later on in the story you realise the reason for this infuriating persona. A good read!

    A boring book for girls but that’s just my opinion because I’m a really girly girl but if your not a girly girl then you might enjoy this book’
