Liverpool, 1940: Thirteen-year-old Joan's home is under constant threat from the Nazis' terrifying nightly air raids. Everyone is on edge, faced with strict food rationing, curfews, and blackouts. It's not an easy time to be a teenager. Joan's one solace is going to the movies with her best friend, Doreen, but when the bombings intensify, even that becomes too dangerous, especially when a strange man is found lurking near their home. Who is he, and why does he think Joan can help him? As the Blitz worsens, Joan and her friends make a discovery that will tear the whole community apart.
In the hardship of war, everything seems to be rationed - except true friendship. From beloved author Shirley Hughes comes a compelling wartime adventure set during the Liverpool Blitz.
