The Lovereading4Kids comment
A chilling, psychological thriller with a strong historical background tells of one boy’s survival against the school bullies. Danny is picked on by the boys at school and the enmity comes to a head on a school trip to the Normandy beaches of the Second World War. When Danny is forced to miss the bus home he is kidnapped by an old man who holds him prisoner, believing he is keeping him safe from the Germans. Danny is almost sent mad before he is rescued but he and the bullies are traumatized forever.
Hangman by Julia Jarman
Toby's heart sinks when he hears that Danny Lamb is coming to Lindley High School. Danny will expect Toby to be his friend, and Toby doesn't want that again. It was bad enough in infants. Danny is different - that's the trouble - though it's hard to say exactly why. Being Danny's friend would destroy his street cred and put his friends off him.
