About the Author:

Michelle Magorian was born in Portsmouth and on leaving school studied at the Rose Bruford College of speech and Drama and Marcel Marceau's International School of Mime in Paris. Over the years she became interested in children's books and decided to write one herself. The result was Goodnight Mister Tom, which won the Guardian Children's Fiction Award, an International Reading Association Award and was also made into a much-loved film.

From Publishers Weekly:

Rusty, 12, faces disturbing changes on many fronts when she returns to England after spending five years in America to avoid the perils of WW II. Ages 12-up.
Copyright 1992 Reed Business Information, Inc.
