There is a lot going on in this story, but never did it become so much that I couldn't keep up with it all. Bradley kept me engaged from start to finish, taking the time to include facts from the World War 2 era from a British point of view. It even made me want to investigate more about the things that really happened. I highly recommend this book. Sadly, there was some choice language in the last pages that was inappropriate.
Nine-year-old Ada has never left her one-room apartment. Her mother is too humiliated by Ada’s twisted foot to let her outside. So when her little brother Jamie is shipped out of London to escape the war, Ada doesn’t waste a minute—she sneaks out to join him.
