From the award-winning author of "Goodnight Mister Tom" comes "Just Henry": a gripping mystery-thriller and an insightful snapshot of time, set in post-war Britain. It's 1949 and life is bleak for Henry. He misses his father who died a war hero, and whenever he can he escapes from his annoying stepfather and stepsister by going to the cinema - his passion. One day in the cinema queue he meets Mrs Beaumont who also loves films, and lends Henry a camera for his school project. Henry is disgusted that he's been put in a group with Jeffries, the son of an army deserter, and Pip, who was born illegitimate; but he's about to learn that tolerance and friendship are more important than social stigmas, and Henry will need his new friends when he makes an alarming discovery. Like a bomb waiting to explode, Henry's world is about to unravel.
