The Lovereading4Kids comment
A wonderful collection of stories from award-winning authors such as Anne Fine, Melvin Burgess, Adele Geras and Berlie Doherty which captures a wide range of life changing experiences for women living through the great upheaval of the First World War. There’s romance, courage, humour, optimism and excitement all shot through with sadness at the overwhelming loss of life.
The Good Book Guide Review. This collection of short stories about the First World War is written from the viewpoint of young women. The stories contain a range of situations, characters and classes, including a brave nurse, and a waitress who uncovers treason. Written by a variety of authors, including Mary Hooper and Melvin Burgess, they completely capture the voice of women at a time of extreme danger and great change. (Ages 11–16)

War Girls by Adele Geras, Melvin Burgess, Berlie Doherty, Mary Hooper
1914: war has broken out across Europe and beyond. Nothing will ever be the same again for those caught up in the conflict. A courageous nurse risks her life at the Front Line; a young woman discovers independence and intrigue in wartime London; and a grief-stricken widow defends her homeland amidst the destruction of war. Through these and other tales, War Girls presents a moving portrait of loss and grief, and of hope overcoming terrible odds.
War Girls gathers together some of the finest writers for older readers to bring to life the impact the First World War had on women... Excellent -- Marilyn Brocklehurst The Bookseller
