Pass the Book

A week or two ago I was lucky enough to have my name picked for Alison's "Pass the Book" and today it arrived all the way from sunny Spain.

Thanks Alison.  I'm going to keep it for my holiday in a few weeks time and then I'll pass it on when I get back.

The book was actually written for the 'YOUNG ADULT' genre, but like HARRY POTTER, TWILIGHT and THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG IN THE NIGHT-TIME is a perfect adult 'crossover' book.

The story is set in the not-too-distant future, and revolves around a 15year-old American girl who comes to stay with her Aunt and her family, somewhere in rural England. Starting off as an idyllic, almost ENID BLYTON-ish (with a bit more 'bite') story, it soon changes, as un-named occupiers invade Great Britain and the nation is thrown into a state of war. There are some interesting insights into what life during an Occupation can/would be like, and there is of course a  Love Story running throughout.
