There was so much to gain from this book: learning to stand up for someone and not giving up are two of the main focuses followed by the characters, and I think this gives such a fantastic message to so many people. As the plot is based on a true situation - children with no homes or real identity being sent away into some unknown, terrifying place with strangers. In WWII, thousands of children were sent to Australia, and while many were lucky to live happy lives, others suffered exactly like Arthur, not knowing anything about who they were and what their future would look like. I laughed along with Arthur in his happiest moments, and when Allie succeeded in her mission, I cheered along with her in delight. I really do recommend this book to others!
