    Paperback Á Back Home PDF/EPUB Ù back download, home download, Back Home eBookI remember first reading this book when I was about 11 or 12 years old It was a perfect book to read at that age as not only was it a wonderful story that taught me about the toll that a war takes on a child but I also remember identifying with the same awkward adolescent changes and experiences that the protagonist Rusty was going through I must've borrowed my library's copy at least a dozen times One of my all time absolute favourite childhood books I really need to get a copy for my own personal library five stars

    Paperback Á Back Home PDF/EPUB Ù back download, home download, Back Home eBookWhen Rusty returns to England after having been evacuated to America during WWII both her family and the country seem unfamiliar and alien Adjusting to her old life is not made easier by the fact that she now has an American accent and a free and easy way of challenging authority that does not make her popular with her teachers or peers Worst of all Rusty feels as if her mother is a stranger and not very supportive at that And boarding school often the refuge for those unhappy at home becomes a place where Rusty is terrorized until she decides to run away

    Paperback Á Back Home PDF/EPUB Ù back download, home download, Back Home eBookI've read a sample of this thanks to Penguin UK and it has been a reminder of just why I loved this book so many years ago That sense of not belonging is captured so clearly by all the children returning home to England from America after the war Their homeland and parents feel like strangers and the struggle to adapt and fit back it makes for a very emotional storylineYou get hooked in very uickly by twelve year old Rusty as she is a very likeable main character but one who plummets into a state of depression England h
