Looking At the Moon: Puffin Classics Edition (The Guests of War) (Paperback)
It’s 1943, and World War II is still raging on. Norah and Gavin can hardly wait for August, when they’ll be leaving to spend the summer at Gairloch, the Ogilvies’ cottage in Muskoka. Norah in particular is looking forward to spending time with the older Ogilvie cousins, swimming, boating … and having as little to do with bossy adults as possible. The arrival of cousin Andrew is a perfect distraction, especially since, at nineteen, he’s handsome and intelligent, and Norah thinks she may be falling in love! How will she survive a summer that promises to be anything but ordinary?
