It is 1945 and the war is over. Everyone is celebrating, except for Dot. War is all she has ever known, and she is worried by this strange thing called peace. Above all, Dot is terrified of the return home of her father - the man with the paper face. Written from an unusual and interesting perspective, "Paper Faces" looks at the difficulty of accepting someone back into a family after a long separation, and explores the idea that a war isn't necessarily over just because the fighting has stopped. The novel presents social history at a very personal and accessible level, and features a strong-minded child heroine with whom readers can identify. Rachel Anderson has written several very well respected novels which take war as their theme, including "Warlands" and "The War Orphan".show more
