Shirley Louise Smith is ten years old in 1939, and her family, along with the rest of London, is preparing for World War Two. All Shirley gets told is that she is going on “a little holiday”.
I love this book because it is historical, fun and educational. I’d recommend this book to anyone who likes Jacqueline Wilson books, history, and “little holidays” .I’d say you should be eight or nine to read it, as it is quite sad.
