Industry Reviews
"Delving into the themes of patriotism, sacrifice and loyalty there is also a whole heap of information about life in New Zealand during World War 2, making this perfect for the classroom." -- Otago Daily Times (NZ)
"A well-written, gripping novel with intense emotional involvement in a well-drawn historical background. It is in the same class as the best of Maurice Gee's historical novels for young adults." -- Magpies (AUS/NZ)
