We've a new young guest reviewer today. It's Alice. She's 12. You might have met her before when she took part in our first teen book group. In her own style, she reviews Billie Templar's War by Ellie Irving.
For Queen. For country. For dad. This book is about an eleven year old girl called Billie Templar and about her life while her dads at war. It is set in England in the modern day. Billie’s main aim is to get her dad home from the war in time for the school’s summer carnival.
My favourite character was Billie because of all her determination and concentration that went into trying to get her dad back home from the war.
- emotional in places (especially towards the end of the book)
- full of determination and willpower
9/10 - a good book
For 9 and over and for people that like modern fiction
