Publisher's Summary

The Second World War has ended, but Henry is fighting his own battles. He misses his father, who died a war hero, and his only distraction is the cinema. But everything is about to change. When Henry develops an old camera film he uncovers a mystery, and events spiral until his life resembles the drama of the big screen. Like a bomb waiting to explode, Henry's discovery will shatter his world. A powerful, gripping, and truly epic story that won the Costa Children's Book Award 2008.


What the Critics Say

"The author has a wonderful gift for hanging a richly woven tapestry around an essentially simple frame." (Times Education Supplement, London)

A compelling reading of an absorbing book

This audiobook made me look forward to return to it each night. I love an engrossing story filled with nuanced, complicated characters. The narrator is terrific. The voice he uses for the villainous grandmother made me want to punch her in the face. Well done!
