    What an absolutely beautiful book Yet another 20p thrift store find worth its weight in gold Again a WW2 novel like so many others I have read but at the same time completely different.As much as I love historical fiction and bolks about WW2 in general, it was refreshing to read about it from a different perspective as this book is about child refugees coming to Northern Ireland where I am from on Kindertransports Highly recommend this book to everyone regardless of age or genres wh What an absolutely beautiful book Yet another 20p thrift store find worth its weight in gold Again a WW2 novel like so many others I have read but at the same time completely different.As much as I love historical fiction and bolks about WW2 in general, it was refreshing to read about it from a different perspective as this book is about child refugees coming to Northern Ireland where I am from on Kindertransports Highly recommend this book to everyone regardless of age or genres which you usually choose. its wonderful on every level

    I remember reading this in 4th class or 5th, and I remember adoring it Everyone in the class loved it We all wanted to know if Karl and Judy would evr fall in love and kiss As a 10 11 year old girl in class room full of girls, romance does seem to over shadow the war, yet its always there above the horizon and we were all aware and waiting for the bombs.I remember the teacher giving this to me, and the classmates started reading it to one another one by one We all had a Page each or paragrap I remember reading this in 4th class or 5th, and I remember adoring it Everyone in the class loved it We all wanted to know if Karl and Judy would evr fall in love and kiss As a 10 11 year old girl in class room full of girls, romance does seem to over shadow the war, yet its always there above the horizon and we were all aware and waiting for the bombs.I remember the teacher giving this to me, and the classmates started reading it to one another one by one We all had a Page each or paragraph if it suited the teacher From the beginning of the book i was caught The Homework was to go home and read the next chapter I read all the way to the middle of the book, and forced myself to stop I adored it.Even in class when I would speed ahead of everyone else being a chapter or so ahead of them, I reached the ending before they did EVERYONE was gobbed smacked We all just sat there in silence until finally the teacher asked us what we thought.Everyone thought it was brilliant.Just recently i was talking to my friend who was in the other class and had to read it as well,and how unfair it was that they got to readbooks then we did She mentioned Far away home We went off to talk about how good it was and how much we loved the characters.We went as far as to ask some of the other girls who read the book with us what did they thinik, surprisingly they all remembered it, all sung its praises saying how fantastic it was and how they wished it was longer.soooooo, Yup.Go read this like now No matter what age The characters were so indepth and it was just amazing It blew my 10 year old mind Since i loved the history behind WW2, i really knew what was happening, but not the whole story Not about what happened at the camps or how jews were treated It left a lasting impacted on all the girls and I

    I read this book and I must say it is amazing I couldn t but it down.I felt so bad for poor Karl a Rosa being taken away from their family like that I was nearly crying when I read the part where Goldie dies and the part where uncle Rudie dies.The book was sad and happy.I think that everyone should read this book to understand what was happing to family s during the second world war.I can tell you right now that after I read this book I really understoodabout how family s and people were I read this book and I must say it is amazing I couldn t but it down.I felt so bad for poor Karl a Rosa being taken away from their family like that I was nearly crying when I read the part where Goldie dies and the part where uncle Rudie dies.The book was sad and happy.I think that everyone should read this book to understand what was happing to family s during the second world war.I can tell you right now that after I read this book I really understoodabout how family s and people were treated during WW2 I am aware that the family in this book is fictional but still I really suggest that kids aged 11 12 13 14 and up read this book because it is so amazing.It really doesn t matter if you 25 and reading this book because it is one of hose books for all age groups

    I enjoyed this book I presented the events simply but without taking away their impact or importance However, this book ended so abruptly with no conclusion It was as if the author didn t know how to finish it so she simply stopped writing.All in all, I liked it.
