Private Peaceful by Michael Morpurgu is a great and an amazing book. The main character, Thomas Peaceful, a sixteen-year-old, lives through hard situations. He witnesses his father¿s death and blames himself for it he also has the fear of being alone. Then when he goes to school he starts to love this girl Molly, but she likes his best friend. Then the First World War begins, and Tom and his best friend lied about their age to go to the war. There they witness and become a part of hard, life threatening situations. He does not know if he is going to make it through enough to make it home alive. This book would be for people who like action, war, and anti-war books with a little twist. It is full of action in 195 pages, which means that it stays amusing from beginning to end. I give this book two thumbs up and give it 5 stars rating.

DON'T CHECK IT OUT!

My personal opinion of this book is not good! My review is not positive because it sounds like it was written for a Social Studies teacher, it was NOT an uplifting book and because it sounds like the author didn't know how to end the book and made a drop-off ending.
