“Grandad’s getting worse. Last night he could have killed us all…”
Alex’s beloved grandfather is sick. His memory is failing, and Alex’s adoptive parents want to put him in a home. Alex has promised Grandad that he won’t let that happen. But Alex has broken promises before. When he was growing up in the Bosnian War, he swore that he would protect his little brother. It was a promise he failed to keep… Now, as Alex struggles to look after his grandfather, he uncovers secrets that his new family and their village have kept hidden for two generations. Unravelling them will cause grief and pain – but might also save his grandfather, and help Alex come to terms with his own private war.
A powerfully moving inter-generational tale of war, memory, love and loyalty, written in the vein of Michael Morpurgo and Michelle Magorian.
