    This is a fictionalised autobiographical account of a young Jewish girl in World War II. Based on the author's own experiences and told as a children's novel the book tells of Kitty's experiences as an evacuee and back in London during the Blitz. The young Kitty is a strong willed child, running away from two houses that she was evacuated to and eventually convincing her mother to let her stay in London. There is quite a lot of interesting social history here, from daily life of Jewish families in the East End to experiences during the war.
