The book I read was Penny's War. This book is told from the veiw point of Grandma Penny. She tells her grandaughter what it was like to be a war child. It starts out with Penny and her brother Peter's house, in London, being bombed during World War 2. Their mom sends them off to a tiny village away from the fighting so they will be safe. Soon they meet their foster parents and some weird things start happening. Peter and Penny begin to come to the conclusion that their foster parents are German spies.
