Operation Blackout by Victor Watson

I really enjoyed this book. I always love Victor Watson's books and this one was just a fabulous as the rest.

I really enjoyed the story. It was split between two characters one boy and one girl and looks at their experiences of the war. The girl's story shows you the experience of London during the Blitz through to life as an evacuee in the Fens. The boy's story follow a young boy forced on a secret mission to England to save his family who are being threatened by the Nazis. Both eventually link up and the story is action packed and exciting from the start. I really enjoyed it and read it in one sitting unable to put it down.

This is a spin off from the Paradise Barn series I previously read and loved. There is some crossover in location and characters from that series make an appearance in this book but you don't need to have read them for this book to make sense (although I very much recommend that you do)
