I started reading it last night....and have just finished it this morning- if I had been able to stay awake longer last night I would have finished it then! It's one of those compelling books that draws you in and has you needing to know what happens next.
The book was actually written for the 'YOUNG ADULT' genre, but like HARRY POTTER, TWILIGHT and THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is a perfect adult 'crossover' book.
The story is set in the not-too-distant future, and revolves around a 15year-old American girl who comes to stay with her Aunt and her family, somewhere in rural England. Starting off as an idyllic, almost ENID BLYTON-ish (with a bit more 'bite') story, it soon changes, as un-named occupiers invade Great Britain and the nation is thrown into a state of war. There are some interesting insights into what life during an Occupation can/would be like, and there is of course a Love Story running throughout.
I'm saying no more, except that it was another great read, and that I'm ready to pass the book on to one of you lovely blog readers!
If you fancy a read at it...and promise to pass it on!.....just leave a comment on this post before midnight (GMT) on Wednesday 23May.
Hope you're having a great weekend...I have just seen on the Weather Forecast that the UK is due some sun and heat this week!!
Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
