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!

    " 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. "

    " 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. "

    " 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! "
