Overview

Toby’s heart sinks when he hears that Danny Lamb is coming to Lindley High School. Danny will expect Toby to be his friend, and Toby doesn’t want that again. It was bad enough in the infant school. Danny is different — that’s the trouble — though it’s hard to say exactly why. Being Danny’s friend would destroy his street credit and put his friends off him. He doesn’t want to harm Danny, and he wouldn’t bully him. Of course not. But on a school trip to Normandy, close to the D-Day beaches where men fought to defeat Fascism, a harmless game goes dreadfully wrong.

“Jarman provides a searing insight into the mindlessness of bullying and the fickleness of so-called friendship.” —Books for Keeps
