Stay Where You Are and Then Leave

Author: John Boyne
Publisher: Corgi

Alfie is five when World War 1 breaks out and his milkman father enlists in the army. Although this is a third person narrative the story is seen very much through his eyes. As the war goes on, Alfie takes responsibility, secretly supplementing the family income and carrying out a mission to find out what has happened to his father. The situations faced by conscientious objectors, shell shocked soldiers and neighbours who are interned are woven into the story which is immersed in everyday detail, giving the reading experience an almost tangible feel.
