About the Author:

Lynne Reid Banks was an actress in the early 1950s and later became one of the first two women TV news reporters in Britain. She is a bestselling author for both children and adults, and has written over forty books, including The Indian in the Cupboard (which was made into a major feature film), the bestselling Harry the Poisonous Centipede and The L-Shaped Room. Lynne says writing for children comes more easily than writing for adults. "It's not that it is less demanding – I just find it more fun."

From School Library Journal:

Gr 4–6—It is the summer of 1940, and 11-year-old Lindy Hanks and her mother and cousin are evacuating from London to Saskatoon, Canada. After five days on a ship and three days on a train, they move in with a middle-age couple named Gordon and Luti Laine, as "war guests." Lindy's adventures in her new home include a scrap-metal drive, a Halloween trick gone wrong, and an exciting vacation to New York. But her story also gives readers a glimpse into the hardships of wartime evacuation. Lindy's older cousin, Cameron, who "[keeps] his feelings shut in," is clearly lonely and unhappy, and fears that his beloved dog Bubbles will be dead before he comes home. The final chapters follow Cameron as he attempts to run away and return to his native England. Lindy's mother, Alex, faces various hardships including financial problems and the unwanted affections of her host, Gordon. The tone of the book shifts frequently as lighthearted and humorous anecdotes are interspersed with serious and sometimes disturbing incidents, such as the passage in which Mrs. Lord, the mother of Lindy's friend Willie, nearly dies after overdosing on sleeping pills. Readers looking for a fast-paced adventure may be frustrated by the leisurely start, though the action does pick up considerably in the latter half of the book. VERDICT Banks's semiautobiographical novel presents a collection of memories—sometimes emotional and sometimes humorous—that will appeal to fans of World War II-era historical fiction.—Magdalena Teske, Naperville Public Library, IL
