The Kid on Slapton Beach


War is hard enough when your dad is missing in action, and harder still when you have to leave everything you know and love.
Twelve-year-old Harry is one of three thousand people leaving the coast in Devon during the Second World War as US troops move into the area, planning secret D-Day rehearsals on the beach there in April 1944.
But what if your most treasured possession is left behind?

I couldn't put it's superb on so many levels... A wonderful book
Michelle Magorian Author of Goodnight Mister Tom

Full of feeling without a trace of sentimentality. I understood and cared about these people. A jewel!
