`This story of friendship, love, grief and growing up will yank on the heartstrings. And then some' Look

Alice Bliss is fifteen. She's smart, funny, and clever. Not afraid to stand up for the things she believes in. She also idolizes her father, and when he leaves home to fight a war she doesn't believe in, Alice is distraught.

She and her mother negotiate his absence as best they can - waiting impatiently for his letters, throwing themselves into school and work respectively, bickering intermittently and, in Alice's case, falling for the boy next door - but then they're told that he's missing in action and have to face up to the fact that he may never return.

Alice Bliss by Laura Harrington is a moving story of family, love and how those left behind carry on.

I loved reading Alice Bliss. A real tear jerker - I had to take pauses, so as not to cry on the tube.

I did start off thinking this was set around an earlier war, and only realised it was more recent because of... More
