This is a powerful read about the effects of WWI on a small Scottish community. It is aimed at young adults but as with a lot of great books it is equally suitable for adults. Well written, powerful and very moving.

Blurb from Amazon :-

Scotland, 1915. A group of teenagers from two families meet for a picnic, but the war across the Channel is soon to tear them away from such youthful pleasures. All too soon, the horror of what is to become known as The Great War engulfs them, their friends and the whole village. From the horror of the trenches, to the devastating reality seen daily by those nursing the wounded, they struggle to survive - and nothing will ever be the same again.



A powerful and engrossing novel about love and war, from Carnegie Medal-winning author Theresa Breslin.

I didn't seem to get along with this book. I only read it hopeing it would get better and get more involved with the war side of things but it didn't. I felt it was all just a bunch of girls bitching moaning and whining.

The story had a very bad plot that seemed to go no where, the author seemed to be glamorising the war and trying to say how everything was all lovely and Rosey when in fact it wasn't

All I can say is that I will not be reading from this author again very dull and boring that's why I only give this book 1/10

Thank you Sparkish - this arrived today. Thanks for the great postcard too. Looks very interesting! I should hopefully get round to reading it next week.

Journal Entry 9 by sarahmangan at Nottingham, Nottinghamshire United Kingdom on Saturday, October 4, 2014
I have to say Abi-Gibby I completely disagree with you - I think we must have been reading different books! I really enjoyed the characters and plot and think it dealt with the issues of propaganda, duty, the horrors of the war, women and class in a sensitive way that a young adult reader could really engage with. Everyone likes different books I suppose! I'm an English teacher who teaches a unit on war writing - I'm definitely going to recommend this as extra reading for my students. Thanks for including me in this ray pennydainty.

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

A nice read, I liked it a lot. It doesn't get too heavy even if it is about WWI (there were some sad bits of course), and still deals with the horrors without getting too graphic. The story gives different viewpoints on the war, and in the background there is also the changing role for women in society. I think Maggie and Francis were my favorite characters and I enjoyed reading their letters. I also liked how there were many references to art and literature.
Thanks for sharing this book pennydainty!


Now the book is on its way to Billbooks. Happy reading!
