Phoebe, Chobham Academy Book Group
This is an amazing book. Unlike many others I've read, where the main two characters are similar in age and eventually fall in love, Toby and Annabelle are written with more of a father-daughter relationship, creating more of a family atmosphere. Despite Toby's quiet exterior, once he and Annabelle start to converse, his background secrets start to reveal themselves and how deeply wars can harm the mental stability of past and present soldiers. There is an additional mystery of what happened to Betty, the classic bully figure. How deep her lies go further creates suspense and interest in an already magnificent plotline. It is a great story that shows how a lie can so thoroughly cause a not happy ending.
