My Secret War Diary, by Flossie Albright Summary

My Secret War Diary, by Flossie Albright by Marcia Williams

A fascinating diary account of the Second World War, as seen through the eyes of a young girl.

Flossie is just nine years old when, in 1939, Britain declares war on Germany and her father leaves the family home to join the army. Flossie is left to bring up her baby brother and to face a whole host of new experiences on her own. Her diary becomes an outlet for relaying all the news from at home and abroad. From the first evacuees arriving to her sweetheart's being killed in Normandy in 1944, Flossie has to endure much hardship. But her own special blend of courage, humour and fighting spirit sees her through to the Armistice, when she can welcome her dad home at last.

Wow! This is simply wonderful - in scrapbook/diary format, this is Flossie Albright's account of her life during the Second World War [...] Written in Flossie's own hand, with plenty of drawings and lots of special pages to open and explore, the presentation is stunning. An engrossing account, told from the perspective of a courageous and resourceful young girl; it really takes the reader into the everyday life of Flossie and the hardships war brought; it shows the resilience of young people and is a superb way to find out about life during the war. * Parents in Touch *
This book gives a fascinating glimpse into what life was like during the Second World War. * The Week Junior *
