A gripping historical thriller for readers aged 12+
“We are huge fans of Robin Scott-Elliot's historical fiction for young people. His books are thoughtful and thought-provoking, packed with drama, empathy and brilliant characters - perfect for tweens and early teens.”
Berlin, 1948. A city besieged. A boy reaches for the sky. Otto Hartmann would do anything to be a pilot. With Berlin blockaded by the Soviets, the Americans fly to the rescue and Otto's captivated by the matinee-idol pilots dropping chocolate for the city's hungry kids. But never mind the Hershey bars - he wants to be up there with them. Now Otto has to choose between those he loves or flying from a ruined city where danger lurks around every corner. And nobody is who they seem, but children are battling to survive in a desperate war-torn city.
Robin Scott-Elliot is the author of several books for young people, including Hide and Seek. He lives on the west coast of Scotland with his wife, two children, a dog, a cat, a rabbit and a guinea pig.
