Stay Where You Are and Then Leave
John Boyne’s story of the Second World War – The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas – broke all our hearts. Now it’s the turn of the Great War. Just in time for the First World War Centenary, this wonder of a book will leave you shell-shocked. It’s the story of a small boy, Alfie Summerfield. And his father, who made a big promise and broke it the day after the war started. A story about a shoeshine boy, a train journey, a white feather. A dark secret. And the fate of thousands of men who gave everything they had to fight for their country in the war.
