My group for reading has just finnished this really cool book called When the war came home.
It is written by Sarah Ell , it is a very good book.
It is a book about how Auckland got hold of the influenza epidemic in November 1918 it was also the end of the first world war. Jimmy K's father went missing in action and he is worried his father maybe dead.
His mother, brothers and sisters end up going away to a farm house and he is left with no one but his uncle Rory. Jimmy is forced to find somewhere else to stay with his uncle Rory until the influenza epidemic has slowly started to fade away.
This is the bit from the back of the book.
It is Novemberm, 1918 the end
of the First World War, and an epidemic of
influenza is sweeping the city of Auckland.
Jimmy K's father is 'missing in action'.
Now his mother has taken his younger
brothers and sisters away to the country, and
thirteen year old jimmy is left with his uncle
to face the horrors of the epidemic.
But uncle Rory has a plan... and jimmy is swept along with his mysterious mission to
right a wrong from the trenches of France.
This book sounds really cool don't you think? I think this book is really cool and interesting, once I stated reading I couldn't stop, except for when I forgot to read a few chapters, but I read them.
If it was a rating out of 10 I would give it a 9. It was very wonderful.
This is the Cover of the book..
