At the start of World War Two, thousands of school-children are evacuated from London to the British countryside before German bombs begin to fall. Kitty Simmonds, a spirited 10-year-old girl from the city's East End, isn't pleased to be leaving her Mum and jolly Uncle Yudi behind.
This memoir talks about the war from the perspective of a young girl who lived in London and was evacuated to the country - not in the midst of battles, but running from the Nazi bombings of the city. She talks about missing her parents, fear, difficulty in getting along in a non-Jewish world, the motivations of the people who took her (and her classmates in), and so on. I read it to my 10 year old, who was fascinated by the stories. A great read, but most directly targeted at kids 8 to teenage years.
