The Smell of Other People’s Houses
It was interesting how the different narratives fit together and the book addresses issues for young people today. The ending was a little unrealistic though!


Salt to the Sea
A different view of the war – from the perspective of different people leaving Germany. Clever use of different voices to tell the story, plenty of tension and some very moving moments – I really enjoyed it. My son (12) also loved it – he read it in about 4 days.
