Description

For anyone who loves the enchanting old-world charm of I Capture the Castle and the wartime adventure of How I Live Now, this is a book to be treasured. 'I need to write down what has just happened. I need to set down the truth. If I write lies or if I write nothing at all, this journal is worthless. I must do this, in case anything happens. All right. This is what happened tonight, every single terrible thing that I can remember ...' Sophie FitzOsborne lives in a crumbling castle in the tiny island kingdom of Montmaray, along with her tomboy younger sister Henry, her beautiful, intellectual cousin Veronica, and Veronica's father, the completely mad King John.When Sophie receives a leather journal for her sixteenth birthday, she decides to write about her life on the island. But it is 1936 and bigger events are on the horizon. Is everything Sophie knows and loves about the change? From Sophie's charming and lively observations to a nailbiting, unputdownable ending, this is a book to be treasured.show more
