The Only Girl in the World is published in April by Scholastic The moving WW1 romance tells the story of a young British soldier, Dennis, and his experiences of war on the Western Front During his leave, he meets and falls in love with a local girl Helene, and promises he will return for her when the war is over The book wonderfully evokes both the trauma of battle, and every day life in provincial France, and is a genuinely moving account of love and loss I found myself rooting for Denniz as Helene calls him, and desperately hoping he would make it home to her It is a real achievement to get that depth of feeling within the constraints of a YA novel, and from the horror of war to craft a story that ends with hope for the future.
