A haunting, beautifully-written blend of fact and fiction that captures the strength of humanity, courage in adversity and heartbreaking loss - Mavis's Shoe is an emotional and compelling novel for adults and young adults. Contemporary in theme (about bombing and the effects of war) this book is about the Clydebank Blitz during the Second World War told through the eyes of a nine-year-old girl, Lenny Gillespie. Lenny survives the bombing, but in the chaos of that night she cannot fi nd her mum and her wee sister, Mavis. Told in an urgent, true-grit voice, the story describes the devastation of the blitz as seen through Lenny's eyes.
