JACQUELINE WILSON UNTITLED
At the beginning of WWII, about 800,000 children were sent away from their homes in Britain's big cities to the countryside where they would be protected from German air raids. Though many returned home after a few weeks, many stayed in the countryside for the duration of the war. Award-winning, bestselling author Jacqueline Wilson turns to this period of history for the first time in this beautfully handled and moving story of friendship against the backdrop of the worst conflict the world has ever known. Stunningly illustrated by Nick Sharratt.
