This would make an excellent companion read to school lessons on war-time evacuees, although it is a definite read for pleasure. Olive and her brother have been evacuated to Devon, but her older sister Sukie is still missing from the night of the bombs.While in Devon, Olive begins to unravel the mystery and finds out that her sister is more connected to Devon than she realized. Being an evacuee she has an understanding of the prejudice that can come from lack of understanding. I particularly liked the character Sukie and I like the part where the bomb goes off while they are at the cinema.
