Sabotaged a tough neighboring gang is to blame A violent clash with the rival gang followed by a long night of bombing close at hand change forever Derek's feelings about the war Young Derek is trying to grow up during the bombing of London He learns lessons about sacrifice and fear in a world we can t control Overall I was disapointed in this book I never fell in love with the characters because they just never revealed themselves to me The author tries to throw in some deepness at the end of the book but it s too little too late An extra thing the artwork on the cover does not happen in the book which I found interesting since I found the book to be a let down when it came to substance

    Not as sensational as 'The Machine Gunners' less ostentatiously sophisticated than 'Fireweed' but of all the blitz stories I read as a child this is the one that stuck with me most It doesn't seem to have made it onto the popular lists of great WW2 children's literature and unable to remember the title I hadn't tracked it down until stumbli

    Aspects of this were interesting about air raid shelters for example and Susan Cooper writes very rounded and emotionally believable boys Whether I entirely want to believe them is another matter The book's main view of masculinities was very problematic for all that it was at least plural and relied pretty heavily on both hetero

    I found this book to be very unappealing First it was dry and didn't have anything that hooked me right away Second there was some awfulness that just seemed to grow and grow without much resolution And yes I do understand that most WWII books touch on terrible things there always seems to be some light thrown in as well at least for kids' books but this was just lacking Pure darkness with no redemption or explanation

    Susan Cooper always writes well This is one of her deceptively simple books On the face of it the story is an uncomplicated children's story but it is as the title suggests about learning what fear really is For Derek and his friends Peter and Geoffrey think the war is as Derek's father said of their attitude 'Just a great game' They contin

    DNF did not finishI started reading this AGES ago I was pretty young at the time but I couldn't get into it and it was dark and depressing It's a fictionalized semi autobiography of the author's experiences as a child during the bombing of London in WWII so obviously horrific the so because it's largely true For those interested in
