The Bombs That Brought Us Together by Brian Conaghan


About the book:

Charlie has always lived in Little Town. It’s home: the curfew, the Regime, the thugs, the poverty. He knows

the rules. Then he meets Pavel. Scrawny, sweary, with fierce blue eyes, he is a refugee from Old Country –

Little Town’s sworn enemy. The wrongest person in the whole place to choose as a friend. But when the

bombs come, the rules of Little Town change. Country or friend? Trust or betrayal? Future or past? Right or

wrong: Charlie must choose.
