Blitz by David Orme


Blitz by David Orme

Blitz is set in World War Two, when Martin is evacuated to Winchester. However, he hates it there, and manages to find his way back home to London. But home isn't where it used to be - a bomb has exploded in his street, leaving him homeless. He decides to return to the country, but truly unexpected events start to unfold before he manages to reach his destination. Blitz is part of the Shades 2.0 series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant and struggling readers. The Shades 2.0 books offer fast-paced, shorter stories (just 64pp each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. Blitz is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading age of 9 - 10 years.
