Carnegie Long List Challenge

This year my challenge to read all of the Carnegie long list before the final winner is announced, hasn’t gone to plan. Well I’ve been Ill and unable to read as much as usual = boo!

However I have started to make up for lost time…..
Here is my first review.


Hitler’s Angel by William Osborne

Enid Blyton managed to “get rid of the parents” so that the Famous Five could go about adventuring. William has come up with a slightly unrealistic way of allowing our teenage heroes (one boy, one girl) to become a bit like SAS secret agents during World War Two with just two weeks training. Suspend all belief and enjoy a rip-roaring adventure, with a little bit of romance, and social conscience.
