It is the summer of 1940, and all England fears an invasion by Hitler's army. The sound of enemy planes fills the air. Norah Stoakes's friends are being sent to safety overseas-but she is sure her family will stay together. Then Mr. and Mrs. Stoakes decide that Norah and her younger brother, Gavin, must go to Canada. Far from home, Norah knows she has to be brave-even when the rich woman they live with prefers Gavin, and her new classmates refuse to accept her. And when things finally become easier, the news from England grows worse and worse. Norah can only wonder: Will she and Gavin ever see home again?Pearson, Kit is the author of 'Sky Is Falling' with ISBN 9780140376524 and ISBN 0140376526.
