by Patricia Grey.
Iris Cutter has never had a boyfriend, thanks to the scar on her face, so when Taz Dixon starts to persue her, she's not sure how to respond. It's hopeless anyway because her parents look down on folk like Taz who run barges up and down the canal.
As the war rumbles on and bombing raids devastate London, fate has some shocks in store for everyone. They won't all survive to tell the tale, and those who do will see their lives changed forever.
