It is really exciting because you get to know the little boy, William, the evacuee and the man who took care of him, Mister Tom, (Thomas Oakley) who really opened his heart to Will.
I liked the book because it was really exctiting and full of really nice and sad things. The boy was really sad and never had anything good happen to him in his life, his mother would beat him up and he had bruises all over him. Once he got to the countryside everything changed, he bacame someone else.It was really nice and I loved it! Once you read it you can't stop reading it!
