This is one of my favorite books!
World War II and the atrocities of the London bombings seem a lifetime away for most young people. In BLITZED, George is a young man who has the opportunity to truly understand the fear and chaos that war can bring.

While on a school trip to a WWII museum, George is transported back in time to learn more about the world that he is so fascinated with in the year 2002.

At first, George is excited and anxious to learn more about his city's history, but then he begins to see the realities of war. During his trip he meets other young people who touch his heart and teach him to appreciate the gifts that today's world has given him.

Food rations, danger, and fear were commonplace during World War II, and that is brought to light in this "ghosts of time past" tale. The characters are believable and it brings to the surface a wartime London that can be forgotten in the midst of other atrocities of the era.

Overall, it is a great story that truly makes the reader think about the difficult times that WWII brought, not only to Nazi Germany, but also to the world as a whole.
