In the hardship of war, everything is rationed – except true friendship. Second novel from Shirley Hughes, set in Britain in WWII

From much-loved author Shirley Hughes comes a compelling World War Two wartime adventure for readers aged 10+ set during the Liverpool Blitz. In the hardship of war, everything is rationed – except true friendship. Joan and best friend Doreen love going to the cinema until the Blitz intensifies and then even that becomes too dangerous, especially when an army deserter is found lurking near their home. Who is he and why does he think Joan can help him? As the Blitz worsens, Joan and her friends make a discovery that will tear the whole community apart… Check out the website for the historical background to the story: www.whistlinginthedarkbook.com.
