9780552570589: Stay Where You Are And Then Leave

From the author of the phenomenally bestselling The Boy in the Striped Pajamas comes an unforgettable story of a boy's life changed by war, published to coincide with World War One's centenary.
     The day the First World War broke out, Alfie Summerfield's father promised he wouldn't go away to fight -- but he broke that promise the following day. Four years later, Alfie doesn't know where his father might be, other than that he's away on a special, secret mission.
     Then, while shining shoes at King's Cross Station, Alfie unexpectedly sees his father's name -- on a sheaf of papers belonging to a military doctor. Bewildered and confused, Alfie realises his father is in a hospital close by -- a hospital treating soldiers with an unusual condition. Alfie is determined to rescue his father from this strange, unnerving place...

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5–8—Boyne, much like in The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (David Fickling Books, 2006), takes readers into the throes of war as seen through the eyes of a child. Alfie will always remember the day the fighting started because it was his fifth birthday, the day his whole world changed, the 28th of July 1914. Alfie's father, a milkman in their London neighborhood, enlists believing "the war will be over by Christmas." Four years later, Alfie is nine and the war rages on. Alfie begins shining shoes to help support his mother who works multiple jobs. Alfie believes his father to be dead until one day, while working, he discovers him in a hospital nearby. Sadly, the reunion is not the happy one Alfie expects. This is an excellent and approachable introduction to the traumas of war. All the characters are well developed and multilayered. Their thoughts and actions are authentic to the time and Alfie is no exception. His youth will not deter older readers since much of what is happening around him is so vivid. Detailed descriptions of character and place take readers into the heart of wartime Europe. There are some outlandish moments, including a scene with the Prime Minister, but this does not detract from the story or seem too incredible within the plot. This is not simply a book about the horrors of shellshock but also a comprehensive depiction of many different aspects of life during the World War I. Artwork not available at time of review.—Kristyn Dorfman, The Packer Collegiate Institute, Brooklyn, NY
