Reader reviewed by Alexandra

Daisy is sent from Manhattan to England to stay with her cousins to get away from her stepmother. Shortly after she arrives her aunt goes away on business, and war breaks out the next day. She and her cousins are forced to leave the house and come to understand how strong their bond really is when they get separated but manage to end up back together. They must protect and help each other in a time when war is everywhere and having no adult supervision suddenly isn't so appealing. This story was riveting and captivating, and I finished it in one sitting.
