Publisher's Summary

Alice is growing up in post-war London: a grey world of old bomb sites. Her escape is her imagination, which always brightens up her day. But when a new boy starts school, her mind begins playing tricks on her.

She's oddly drawn to him, and whenever they are out together the world becomes a more exciting place. A place where the things she imagines appear to become real.

Brilliant!

I wasn't sure if this was a young adult's book or not but thoroughly enjoyed it. Evocative of my childhood in the 50's and yet with an almost creepy feeling of Harry Potter. Lovely!
