Mary Hoffman recommends
thumb
Saving Rafael (2009)
Leslie Wilson
"Saving Rafael was a book I couldn't put down. Leslie Wilson has told a story full of excitement and tension, about how even under the greatest strain and fear, teenage love finds a way to develop and survive."
thumb
The Skylarks' War (2018)
Hilary McKay
"Hilary McKay’s novel is about love as much as war: the effect on children of being deprived of it and the beneficial results on adults of its persistence. McKay is incapable of writing an uninteresting character or a dull scene... I loved it."
