    In the quiet cul-de-sac where Keith and Stephen live the only immediate signs of the Second World War are the blackout at night and a single random bombsite. But the two boys start to suspect all is not as it seems when one day Keith announces a disconcerting discovery: the Germans have infiltrated his own family. And when the secret underground world they have dreamed up emerges from the shadows they find themselves engulfed in mysteries far deeper and more painful than they had bargained for.

Gripping

by piafinn on Aug 7, 2008

This novel starts out slowly, but builds layers of mystery. An old man returns to his old neighbourhood in England and recalls war-time exploits of spying on neighbours. His friend believes his own mother is a German spy and they set out to follow her and catalogue her suspicious behaviour. You try to imagine different scenarios to explain her actions and wonder who's up to what. It was a gripping story and I wasn't sure how it would end. It portrayed how children view the adult world, and the conflicting feelings of adolescence well. There was one unanswered question, though. Why was the man hiding out? Can someone tell me.
