Publisher's Summary

Jack, standing among the war graves, sees a face he recognises. Suddenly, it’s 1914 again and he’s a young lad back in the trenches. Visions of killing and misery come to him with horrible clarity. But then Jack remembers, too, the incredible moment when the guns fell silent for a short time, and fighting gave way to football on the frozen ground of No-Man’s-Land.

This amazing story shows that even in times of conflict and extreme sadness there is always hope.

What the Critics Say

"This is a necessary, powerful, outspoken but ultimately healing book" (The School Librarian)

"A moving story which fully captures the horrors of war. One of the best children's or teen books to tackle a difficult topic." (The Bookbag)

"James Riordan was one of our most powerful writers of war stories... All secondary schools should take the opportunity to re-stock this important title" (Kathryn Tyson, The School Librarian Magazine)

"This is a moving account of the reality of war and the terrible personal cost to a 17-year old recruit" (Pat Walsh, Historical Novel Review)

"This is compelling, revealing reading" (Caroline Franklin, Newbury Weekly News)
