RE: Private Peaceful
Two brothers who grow up together and though they are three years apart, they are the closest of friends, and share everything, including their love for a girl called Molly, who is a good friend of theirs.
Later on they go off to war, even though the younger brother, whose perspective the book is written from, is underage.
It takes you through all their emotions and feelings, and has a great storyline which is based on a true part of history. It has a very sad ending.
Fiction books about the war, and books about friendship. And other books by Michael Morpurgo.
Alone so you can concentrate on it and really get into it.
Maybe a march??
