The Second World War has ended, but Henry is fighting his own battles. He misses his father, who died a war hero, and his only distraction is the cinema. But everything is about to change.

When Henry develops an old camera film he uncovers a mystery, and events spiral until his life resembles the drama of the big screen. Like a bomb waiting to explode, Henry's discovery will shatter his world.

A powerful, gripping, and truly epic story that won the Costa Children's Book Award 2008. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " The length of this book put me off starting it for a while. However, once I took the plunge, I couldn't put it down. I learnt much about life in the 1950s, especially how morally different times were then to now. I just hope that not all grandmothers were as evil as in this book! "

    " I loved this - the author cleverly juggles several different themes, and there are very few children's books set in this period of time (immediately post WW2), so I found the setting intriguing too. It's a worthy reminder that single-parent families are far from being a modern invention. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 10/28/2013

    " Just Henry = just purely engrossing, old-school storytelling with some wonderful characters and a central protagonist, Henry, who begins to realise how his narrow thinking has been influenced by the people around him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margali | 9/19/2013

    " Starts a little slowly, but moves to a rollicking climax. Not quite as good or as touching as Good Night, Mr. Tom or Back Home, but I'm definitely glad I read it. I wish Michelle Magorian would write more books and do it faster! "

    " Great children's adventure - worth reading at any age! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aman | 2/19/2013

    " Lovely, heartbreaking book about a boy who finds many skeletons in cupboards... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harriet Jackson _I_AM_CRAZY_ | 8/14/2012

    " AMAZING, Couldn't put it down, it's all about funny WW11 tradions like desserters, bigamist and so much more and about a boy being stuck in the middle, thinking his fathers a hero but instead is a criminal, READ IT "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ros | 6/9/2012

    " Henry comes to realise that life isn't as straightforward as he thinks as he comes of age. Great read and very touching in places. "

    " Very nice book about the predjudices that live in a small town shortly after WWII. In between going to the pictures and discovering he and his friends are being followed Henry learns not to judge a book by its cover. "

    " It's definitely not a fast read, but i'm intrigued enough to find out what happens. "

    " This book was great! It would have been five stars if only it had been little more fast-paced. "
