Why hasn’t Willie answered his letters? He must find him. Something is wrong…

    Reading Goodnight Mister Tom was very emotional also seeing the film drew me more closer to the feeling which the author must of put into the book I loved it and the description is magnificent really helpful for English.

    I think this book is very emotional and you can very easily feel empathetic towards the young boy in the story who has been evacuated to the country. It seems he hasn’t had a very nice life so far with his mother and when he returns home, it doesn’t get any better. Overall i think Goodnight Mister Tom is a very heartwarming and emotional story that will leave you in tears.
