Win 1 of 5 copies of The Runaways by Holly Webb, published by Scholastic

It’s London in the late 1930s, and the Second World War is imminent. When a young Londoner called Molly hears that the children in her neighbourhood are being evacuated, she feels relieved. The war scares her, and living in the city means living in the heart of danger.

However, Molly’s relief is short lived because her mum refuses to let her go, telling her that she has to stay and help with the war effort. And that’s not all – times are tough, and there’s not enough food or supplies for people, let alone pets. This means that Molly’s beloved dog Bertie is now considered “surplus to requirement”. So Molly decides to escape.

We have 5 copies of The Runaways to give away. For your chance to win one just email your name and full address to [email protected] using the subject line WBD The Runaways. The winners will be chosen at random after the closing date of 31stOctober.
