A 2016 Newberry Honor book and a DCF 2016-2017 book and deservedly so.  This is the story of Ada, a ten year old WWII evacuee from London, her brother, Susan the woman who takes them in and Butter the Pony.  I literally read this book in 24 hours.  Ada is so likeable and damaged that you can't help but root for her to survive and thrive.  Look for the sequel "The War I Finally Won" to be released in October 2017.
