Sorry, yes - clearly expecting everyone to be pyschic!

Which book are you talking about - Sirens wail?

I know I should be saving this for the Streatfeild BD but unless I
post it
now, I will forget my reaction, and it would be shame to deprive you
all of
my thoughts...
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.
