Scotland, 1915. A group of teenagers from two families meet for a picnic, but the war across the Channel is soon to tear them away from such youthful pleasures. All too soon, the horror of what is to become known as The Great War engulfs them, their friends and the whole village. From the horror of the trenches, to the devastating reality seen daily by those nursing the wounded, they struggle to survive - and nothing will ever be the same again. A powerful and engrossing novel about love and war, from Carnegie Medal-winning author Theresa Breslin.

"Young readers will find themselves swept along with Breslin's engaging cast into a world where duty and compassion must somehow co-exist" * TES *

"Breslin's light touch and beautiful prose give the harrowing sights and sounds of the war a much more human feel . . . A novel that will stay with me for a long time" * The Bookseller *
"Theresa Breslin is simply a superb writer and I strongly recommend this novel to all readers" * Teen Titles *

This book is one of the best I have ever read, the characters have a period feel of their time, staying true to the period.
