Goodnight Mister Tom is by Michelle Magorian and is now a major TV adaptation. It is about a boy called Willie who is evacuated from London and is staying with a man called Tom. Then he makes some friends and starts being called Will. Then he goes back to his mother who leaves him to die. Then he goes to a hospital and Tom kidnaps him to stop him from going to a children’s home. Then he goes home. Soon Will’s mum commits suicide and Tom adopts him. Then one of Will’s friends called Zach dies.
I like the way the people talk in the book. My favourite bit was when Will was trying to cope with Zach’s death. What I didn’t like was when Will was in hospital. It was a bit scary and Sam thought so too. Sam was afraid of Will’s mum.
I reckon the book was brilliant and it was unputdownable. I would definitely recommend it for people from the age of 9 onwards.
