Evacuee: A Real-Life World War ll Story

Read Jan’s true story of bombs, rations, country life and escape from the Blitz. A look at the war from a kid’s point of view, full of amazing photos. Being young can be tough, right? Yucky school dinners. Homework. Sharing the remote control. But spare a thought for poor British kids in World War II, who had things even worse. If they weren’t flattened by bombs, they were packed off to a strange new life in the country. A new family. Food rations. Gas mask drills. The Blackout. And homework. Wish you were there? See what it was really like.

  • I really want to read this book, i read the description and it looks great, although i might have to put it down if it gets to sad. Reading this would probaly put my whole life in perspective, that my childhood is not nearly so bad. I am reading wonder at the moment, the events of a boy an unfortunate facial deformaty. I have also read pig heart boy in English lessons, and this is also about a boy with a lethal desicion for wether he wants a heart transplant-from a pig. These are two great books, but they are not on this website. I love sad but different books like this that really make you think. 📚
