Q:Today's the US Independence Day. Share your favourite book with a war in it, or an overthrow of the government.
Wow, this is just a hard choice really. I had so many books lined out, but I had to give the precedence to "Goodnight Mr. Tom" by Michelle Magorian. This book was so amazing, and moving, it had me on an emotional roller-coaster. I've reread it so many times after that, but it never fails to make me cry. I love it!
Goodnight Mr. Tom by Michelle Magorian
The gruff and surly Mr Thomas Oakley is less than pleased when he is landed with a scrawny little city boy as a guest, but because it is compulsory that each villager takes in an evacuee he reluctantly agrees. It soon becomes obvious to Mister Tom that young Willie Beech is hiding something, and as the pair begin to form an unlikely bond and Willie grows in stature and in confidence he begins to forget the past. But when he has to return to war-torn London to face his mother again he retreats into his shy and awkward ways once more.
