Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian

A moving story about a boy evacuated from London out into the countryside. 

Join young William Beech as he is evacuated from London to Little Weirworld ,where he is billeted with Tom Oakley , during World War 2.

He does lots of new things and discovers talents he didn't know he had. He goes from being skinny , shy and unloved ,to well fed ,confident and happy.
When he is called back home by his mean cruel mother his life completely changes again and not for the best.
Will he ever be reunited with Mister Tom and his friends again?

This historical fiction has lots of twists and turns of Williams life and at times is very upsetting .It seems realistic because things like this may have happened in the wartime . The characters are very well described and feel real.
I felt as if I had stepped back in time and had a feeling of what it was like being a WW2 evacuee.
I liked this book very much even though it was tragic at times.
I rate it 4/5.
