Alfie Summerfield is five years old when his father leaves to fight in World War I. By the time he is nine, the letters from the front have stopped coming, and none of the adults he has known his whole life will tell him the truth about what might have happened to his dad. Alfie is determined to figure it out for himself. Alfie's world centers around his London neighborhood -- the close, terraced houses on Damley Road, where "all the people were friends, or they had been before the war began." His observations -- of the small changes creeping into his everyday life; of his neighbors and their differing opinions about the war -- bring the period to life. Boyne doesn't shy away from the horrors of war, but I was so invested in the characters I couldn't stop reading. No matter your age, you'll connect with Alfie's story.
