I returned my previous library book without finishing it so I have started a new one.  I abandoned my previous novel because I thought it had a terrible plotline and the characters were boring.

New book title: Goodnight Mister Tom

So far, I have read up to page 31. The characters that I have encountered are Mr Tom and Willie Beech. The novel is set during the Second World War, and near the beginning of it, Willie is evacuated to the countryside. Willie’s mother requested that he lives by the church so he is adopted by the man who lives right by the church’s graveyard, Mr Tom.
