18. 'The War That Saved My Life,' by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley
Set in England during World War Two, this is the story of how ten-year-old Ada manages to slip out of her cruel mother's grasp and join her six-year-old brother Jamie when he is evacuated from London to the countryside. It's Ada's first time out of her house because her mother is too ashamed of her twisted foot to let her outside.

Ada and Jamie are taken in by an older lady that isn't welcoming at first, but the bond between the children and their new guardian grows. But will it be enough to keep them together after the war ends?
