Margot & Me
by Juno Dawson
How can you hate someone in the present and love them in the past? While her mum recuperates from a long illness, Fliss Baker moves to the countryside to live with her cantankerous, bullying grandmother, Margot. Life on the farm is tough and life at school is even tougher, so when Fliss unearths Margot’s wartime diary, she sees an opportunity to get her own back. But Fliss soon discovers Margot’s life during the evacuation was full of adventure, mystery . . . and even passion. What’s more, she learns a terrible secret that could tear her whole family apart.
