This has sold tremendously well and is a Newbery Award winner. It's good that this book brings the evacuee experience to a new American audience. However, it just didn't resonate with me. The London East End accents weren't right. I questioned the premise of girl not going to school in a country that had compulsory Education since 1870. I come from an English village and this book just didn't build a world I recognized particularly regarding sense of place and class.

Inspired by the true story of Walter Tull the first black officer in the British army, this covers both WW1 and WW2 and draws upon Michael Morpurgo's own experience of discovering that his family wasn't as straight forward as he believed. Haunting!
