Marcus Sedgwick's always top quality prose perfectly echoes the feeling of unease and alienation that must surround a character like Sasha who sees things she shouldn't be able to see. The intriguing story and its countdown effect will keep readers turning pages and the ending will challenge but will not disappoint. Highly recommended.
only complaint really is the ending. It didn't really hit me as a "that
was awesome" type of book, but it was an enjoyable read nonetheless.
Deals with WWI and a girl who sees her brother's future, pretends to be
a nurse to find him and then attempts to save him from dying.
