    I picked this book up thinking it was a historical novel, but didn t see that it was for Young Adults I found it rather predictable and corny Personally, I need a bitpunch,to get my teeth into, but I am sure teenagers would like it very much.

    To me this was a great read, probably you had to live in those years like I did to really appreciate it, My Mother too was bombed out and we also lost everything we had, although my Mother and sister were dug out safely from the cellar shelter, I was in the North of England at the time, although returned to London in 1942 so saw a lot of the war myself, I was 12 years old so fully aware of what was going on I will readby this author.

    Beautiful book Was different from the usual crazy thriller books I am reading Poppy s love is encouraging although it was hard to imagine her being 13 years old, because of her thinking But it was simply beautiful and I couldn t stop reading it.

    Poppy Brown is one one of millions of English civilians who were evacuated out of London into the countryside in September 1939 Like so many of those evacuees, she was a child from London s East End She was 13 and was shipped to Dorset Taken in the wealthy Carroll family, Poppy finds herself neither upstairs nor downstairs, while she is struggling with the transition from child to young woman At various points, she is neglected, expected to work for no wages, and treated as a pet The one co Poppy Brown is one one of millions of English civilians who were evacuated out of London into the countryside in September 1939 Like so many of those evacuees, she was a child from London s East End She was 13 and was shipped to Dorset Taken in the wealthy Carroll family, Poppy finds herself neither upstairs nor downstairs, while she is struggling with the transition from child to young woman At various points, she is neglected, expected to work for no wages, and treated as a pet The one constant in her ever changing world is Guy Carroll, the son of the house At first he sees her as a child, while to her he is her first great crush As the war toils on, Poppy grows up and is bounced from Dorset to London as the war and the whims of the Carroll family take her In the end, she finds herself as the one true friend of the family, keeping them together as they all wait for Guy to return from the war.Verdict Poppy s travels provide a terrific perspective on the home front both for the average person and the wealthy At the same time, Poppy s War contains a very sweet romance inside the pages of a lovely historical story of World War II on the English homefront Highly recommended

    Painfully boring I m a sucker for WW2 novels otherwise I wouldn t have read it This book suffers from a lack of imagination The sentences are bland, the plot itself is tiresomely long winded and Poppy the heroine is depressingly shallow Very few details are included about her or indeed anyone s personality.Another thing I was annoyed about this is supposed to be a love story At the beginning of the book, Poppy is 13 She remains as a teenage evacuee for almost half the book The second Painfully boring I m a sucker for WW2 novels otherwise I wouldn t have read it This book suffers from a lack of imagination The sentences are bland, the plot itself is tiresomely long winded and Poppy the heroine is depressingly shallow Very few details are included about her or indeed anyone s personality.Another thing I was annoyed about this is supposed to be a love story At the beginning of the book, Poppy is 13 She remains as a teenage evacuee for almost half the book The second half is rather rushed In fact, the hero doesn t explicitly declare his love for Poppy until 30 pages or so from the end.I don t think I would reccomend a book like this to anyone Unrealistic conclusions, tedious descriptions and Poppy s tiresome aura of perfection make it the perfect novel to irritate me or anyone sane

    For its genre the entire genre is my guilty pleasure I thought this was a really good read All of this kind of book tend to have happy endings so in that sense, you kind of knew what was coming, but it was less predictable than most It also didnt have an illigitimate pregnancy which is a very repetitive plot line I m not sure i felt as sorry for Poppy as i was meant to but still enjoyable Good, light read.

    I love this bookI say that for a lot of books but i read this one three years ago and i still remember it Lily Baxter is a great authorThis story is about a girl named poppy who is sent to the countryside when the war begins She meets a handsome guy and falls in love But she can t have him because he is engagedit is all about her struggle and its totally heart wrenching I totally recommend this book

    Found this at a Half Price Books one day the synopsis on the back sounded interesting, but the story on the inside was simply okay 2 1 2 stars, if I could give it The novel takes up about five years of Poppy Brown s life, from age 13 to 17, and we see her grow and mature on the home front while dreaming of the love of her life and hoping he will return to her A simple, cheesy, and predictable story, with a happily ever after ending that ties up all the loose ends.
