Michelle Magorian’s unforgettable tales of war and its aftermath bring alive a world of evacuees, rationing, soldiers, children sent away from home… and children returning. Vividly bringing alive the wartime era through the voices of young people, these celebrated tales bring a bygone era to life in richly evocative detail. Readers will follow the struggles of children such as Rusty, an evacuee returning home from America to an England that now feels completely foreign, and Ralph, who dreams of acting in the theatre but faces opposition from his father. Through her believable storytelling, the author not only tells moving stories of youngsters coming of age in a war-torn world, but also captures a moment of widespread social change, and the tension between the old world and the new.
