Synopsis

Kezzie at War by Theresa Breslin

During the 1930s Depression in Scotland, Kezzie and her young sister Lucy are luckier than most. Following their father's death, they manage to stay together and live on the little work Kezzie and Grandad are able to find. But life turns sour when Lucy goes missing. Without hesitation, Kezzie sets off alone to find her sister, a difficult journey which takes her over the Atlantic to Canada . . . In the second story, Kezzie and Lucy are reunited with Grandad in Clydebank. The Second World War breaks out, and the family spirit is put to the test. Kezzie's strength is needed by so many - she must save an Italian family from the racial hatred they encounter, and rescue her old school friend Peg. As Clydebank is bombed and becomes a burning inferno, will Kezzie be strong enough to turn a tragedy into a triumph?

Reviews

A remarkable story of hope and determination in the face of seemingly unsurmountable odds, which lingers in the mind long after the book is laid aside * Valerie Bierman * A touching story . . . Vividly described * Times Educational Supplement * This book really makes you understand how lucky we are not to be living in the poverty-stricken 1930s. We get a vivid picture of what it must be like to have little money or food * Independent on Sunday *

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
