Just finished it last night, and the reasons I didn't really like are twofold:
1. It reminded me too much of "Saplings", possibly my least favourite book of all time.
2. Like Saplings, it was probably written primarily to show people how bad war is for children. It seems to formulaic. Evacuation? Check. Being caught in an air-raid? Check. Rationing? Check. Etc.
