I loved this book! I literally could not put it down. The tale of Annabelle, ruthless Betty and war hardened Toby.
Annabelle lives in Pennsylvania during the Second World War. But Betty comes along and bullies her. Betty does horrible things taking someone's eye out and sharpening wire to injure people. She blames all of this on quiet Toby whom know one knows anything about.
It all leads to Betty dying of infection after falling down a hole and her shoulder being impaled on a pipe. Everyone blames Toby except Annabelle who helps him. Toby is hunted down and shot. In the end they all feel ashamed when they find Toby's medal of honour.
I think this book will win.
