Very occasionally, a novel or series of novels hits a perfect chord with a worldwide readership, dominating the bestseller lists and instantly garnering the tag ‘classic’. These two novels by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley are two such books. Reminiscent in both storyline and emotional impact to
Michelle Magorian’s much-loved 1981 novel
Goodnight Mister Tom, Bradley’s tale is set in England during WW2 and is about plucky but damaged Ada, burdened by talipes (clubfoot) and an unimaginably horrible early childhood, but saved by the love of her young brother Jamie, adopted mother Susan and the residents of the rural village to which she and Jamie have been evacuated. Hugely rewarding reading for boys, girls and everyone else aged 9+.
