Product description

Legendary author Shirley Hughes shows you the spirit of the Blitz. Courage. Terror. Friendship. First love. She’ll make you feel it just like you’re right there. Just like (props) she actually was. Liverpool, 1940, is a tough place to grow up. Especially during wartime. Joan and her best friend Doreen make the best of things – until they find an army deserter. Who is he? Why does he think Joan can help him? As Nazi bombs rain down, the friends learn his dark secret…

  • A stunning Blitz novel to rival Goodnight Mister Tom
  • Written by Shirley Hughes – a legend in her own lifetime
  • Shirley has written dozens of all-time classics for all ages
  • “A real gem and a treat to read!” – Books for Keeps
