As a Jacqueline Wilson Fan, I found the story very moving and realised. This story of a child evacuated from their home during World War Two, is one of the most moving stories I have ever read.
I felt sorry for Shirley being evacuated away to the country from her parents.For Shirley to find a best friend called Jessica but Jessica was a rich person, so she stayed with sister Josephine, but Shirley wanted to stay with Jessica wasn’t allowed too, she was put with two boys Kevin and Archie.
Archie was acting like a baby and Kevin was tall and he likes playing Cowboys games and would often ask Shirley and Archie to play with him. Kevin and Shirley sit next each other in classroom at school.
I found it really interesting how Shirley was so clever and liked reading books, likeing Ballet shoes and she was very sensible too.
I would recommend this book to anyone.
