blitz book review

I'm 8 now and i am righting a book review on a book called Blitz in a series of books
called My Story.

I would give it a 5 star rating because it is exiting,funny and it's all for kids,it
doesn't have any grown up words that kids don't understand.

My favourite part is a part when the girl staring the book Edie(short for Edith)and brother
Tom (short for Thomas)are sent away from their home in London to the country side to Mr and
Mrs James who are very strict with out their sisters Shirl(short for Shirley) Miranda and
brother Fred. They were so miserable they escaped on a train back to their home.

Did I mention the Blitz was when England declared war on Germany and German bombers bombed
London.Edie's mum and dad were involved in this , her mum was part of the RAF, and her dad was a firefighter and he spoke to the king, twice!

She had a job as a post girl when she was 12. She wrote in her diary 5 year's later
when she was at university when she was 17.

It all happened in 1940 to 1941 and 1946.

I got it from Urmston book shop and if you look it up I'm sure you'll love to give them
and, them give it to their kids. You do not have to get Blitz they is a variety of them
like Pompeii, and Mill Girl , wich is set in Manchester were I live.

I would also recomend it for adults too because it is well , what can I say , its about a war!
