The Lovereading4Kids comment
No child who reads this will ever sanction a war if they can help it. Marcus brings the horrors of World War One to life in fiction in the most dramatic of ways.
It really is completely compelling, made all the more frightening by the fact that one of the key protagonists is able to see into the future. And if you like cliffhangers at the end of every chapter you can’t do better than this.
The Foreshadowing by Marcus Sedgwick
17 year old Sasha Fox is the only daughter of a doctor living in the seaside town of Brighton. But her brothers, Edgar and Tom, have gone to war and Sasha has a terrible gift. She can see the future. Her premonitions show her untold horrors on the battlefields of the Somme, and worse still, what will happen to Edgar and Tom.
Felix Taylor (aged 13), INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY 'This is amazing stuff with cliffhangers at the end of every chapter, making you want to read on.'
Sonia Benster, THE BOOKSELLER 'This is a thoughtful read for transition age children who like vividly reconstructed historical events'
