A terrific mixture of mystery and adventure in the closing moments of World War 2 as strangers and friends return from the frontline. Molly and Abigail must accept the changes that result and accept them but when something happens to their friend Adam it turns their world upside down. This is the fourth book in this sequence of World War 2 novels. Perfect for 9-12 year olds.

The first book in the series, Paradise Barn was shortlisted for the Branford Boase award - click here read more about it.

Everyone a Stranger by Victor Watson

1945 - The War in Europe was coming to an end. The allied armies were closing in on Berlin. Soon, Hitler would be captured, or killed, and Germany would surrender. Soldiers are returning, some damaged, some whole, some not at all, and life is changing for everyone. Both Molly and Abigail must learn to live with strangers in their home – Molly’s father, returned from the frontline and ready for a future Molly doesn’t want and Abigail’s annoying cousin Ivy from London. – but neither of them are ready for an event that will turn their friend Adam into a different person.
