    PDF/EPUB Hilary McKay ì The Skylarks’ War PDF/EPUB ↠ The Skylarks’ ePUB ì skylarks’ free, The Skylarks’ kindle, The Skylarks’ War ePUBWhat an amazing and moving story My wife read it first and couldn’t put it down She kindly passed it on to me and I read it in a day I am a history teacher and often have issues with books set in the World Wars as the writers tend to make obvious errors but this was beautifully written and I felt captured the mood of the war years I was moved almost to tears in places It reminded me of so many amazing books like; War Horse the Railway Children and maybe Swallows and s With All uiet on the Western Front in there too For a children’s novel it was uite brutally honest about how hard and dark the Western Front could beDare I say a modern classic? I am going to recommend this for the school library and my students What a lovely story

    PDF/EPUB Hilary McKay ì The Skylarks’ War PDF/EPUB ↠ The Skylarks’ ePUB ì skylarks’ free, The Skylarks’ kindle, The Skylarks’ War ePUBThis book is written for 9 12 year olds but I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it It has won so many awards I really wanted to see what it was all about I knew I’d love it for the Cornwall references alone but it is also a beautifully written account of a young family who all become teenagers during the Second World War who are torn apart in various ways not just the obvious ones Many of the issues are pretty deep would soar over the heads of the average 9 year old but written in such a way that it won’t offend or upset younger readers I adore Hilary Mckay’s way of explaining the unexplainable particularly when it comes to war The armies are made up of”Perfectly reasonable people the sort who in their previous lives let wasps out of windows; read story books to children doing all the proper voices; flinched at flat notes; and hardly ever shouted got drunk or forgot their mother’s birthdays absolutely ordinary people ma

    PDF/EPUB Hilary McKay ì The Skylarks’ War PDF/EPUB ↠ The Skylarks’ ePUB ì skylarks’ free, The Skylarks’ kindle, The Skylarks’ War ePUBThis is so meticulously plotted that I don't uite know how to untangle what didn't work for me from what absolutely did I'll start by saying that as a war book this isn't as successful to me as The Road Home or Rilla of Ingleside It's too contemporary for that Something about it screams historical fiction instead of product of its time Part of that might be Clarry who's oblivious for a good chunk of the book which blunts its impact Part of that is the way the book tries to be everything at once a family story McKay absent parenting and a found family story and an empowerment story and a war book It's small scale and la

    PDF/EPUB Hilary McKay ì The Skylarks’ War PDF/EPUB ↠ The Skylarks’ ePUB ì skylarks’ free, The Skylarks’ kindle, The Skylarks’ War ePUBVery much a deserved winner of any book award Slow and steady in pace Skylark's War gently promenades us through the early years of our protagonist Clarry as she spends her youth between her insular and deeply self centred father I realise there is here than McKay lets on and her grandparents on the coast As we peer at this world over Clarry's innocent and ignorant shoulder we see it change and darken with the advent of war and the loss of those that she loves Relationships change and are challenged and Clarry must make a choice between embracing that transition into adulthood or remaining within the comforting shadow of servitude to her father I understand why many write about how they wanted to be friends with the entire cast much of this is down to McKay's excellent prose and careful planning but it was Clarry all the way for me A delight from start to

    PDF/EPUB Hilary McKay ì The Skylarks’ War PDF/EPUB ↠ The Skylarks’ ePUB ì skylarks’ free, The Skylarks’ kindle, The Skylarks’ War ePUBOccasionally very occasionally you read a book that slips so perfectly into the canon that it seems as if it was always there That you read it as a child reread it over and over until it forms part of you along with Anne Shirley and Jo March the Fossil sisters Jo Bettany and Veronica Weston and Nicola Marlowe the Skylarks' War is such a bookClarry's birth coincides with her mother's death and her father who only misses out on tyranny through indifference thinks it's a shame she didn't depart along with the wife he's too selfish to mourn Somehow Clarry holds on and al

    PDF/EPUB Hilary McKay ì The Skylarks’ War PDF/EPUB ↠ The Skylarks’ ePUB ì skylarks’ free, The Skylarks’ kindle, The Skylarks’ War ePUB'Clarry was 3 days old when her mother died' The Skylarks' War is a poignant narrative following the lives of Clarissa Clarry her brother Peter and cousin Rupert Growing up at a time when the world outside was amidst turmoil the three and their friends build happy memories together that are at stake during the world war The 'pity of war' that Owen once wrote about has been brought out once again from the perspective of a kids growing into adults Although the book does get a bit draggy owing to the monotonous writing style the plot has been executed brilliantlyHilary McKay lists a long bibliography and the book is pretty well researched as well which is a plus point for any book that is s

    PDF/EPUB Hilary McKay ì The Skylarks’ War PDF/EPUB ↠ The Skylarks’ ePUB ì skylarks’ free, The Skylarks’ kindle, The Skylarks’ War ePUBI uickly realised why this book had won The Costa and was amazed it hadn't won yetClarry Peter and their older cousin Rupert are characters to take into your heart forever Told through the innocent childhood eyes of Clarry McKay is able to tackle some heavy issues Family dysfunction bullying sexism and feminist issues homosexuality and the hardships of war are all in this book McKay hints at stuff leads us up to a point but she never tells us or explains She leaves us to work it out and make the connections ourselves as all the best stories doThe Skylarks' War will make you laugh and cry I found myself hugging it to my chest several times and wondering how many people I could make read this book asapFull review here

    PDF/EPUB Hilary McKay ì The Skylarks’ War PDF/EPUB ↠ The Skylarks’ ePUB ì skylarks’ free, The Skylarks’ kindle, The Skylarks’ War ePUBHilary McKay's storytelling is so very lovely; the structure of her sentences so supple and clear; her characters so utterly real You don't have to want to be there with them you are This is called Love to Everyone in the US; but I like the British title better
