Jo did not stop until he'd shut the door behind him and even then his heart could not stop pounding in his ears.
Jo finds out that Jewish children are being smuggled away from the Nazis over the mountains near his village. All goes to plan until German soldiers start patrolling the mountains, and Jo realises the children are trapped. Jo's slightest mistake could have devastating consequences.
Shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal and Guardian Fiction award.
In the tradition of Goodnight Mr Tom, Carrie's War and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and perfect for fans of The Bone Sparrow, Waiting for Anya is a novel that takes children to the heart of a tumultuous period in history. It will provide a wider context for kids who have studied the Holocaust and The Diary of Anne Frank.
"The adventure of the Jews' escape into Spain is both gripping and temperate." (Publishers Weekly)

This book made me cry not at the end but all the way through. A truly fascinating story.

I was unsure what to expect as this book is written aimed.at older children however i found that i became involved with all the characters from the minute they were introduced. Hard to switch it off. Although being overtired i did fall asleep at one point and had to rewind . Would recommend for all ages
This is the first-time I've listened too an audio book. I really enjoyed 'reading' a book this way,
