When they come back it starts to rain and Willie's clothes get soaked. Reading Experience I liked this chapter because of the development made by the characters in the book.
Beech sends will off to live with Mr. Tom greets him in the morning but Willie doesn't seem to mind so much about it.
Will didn't even know how to act around his first friend, Zach. Tom is extremely thoughtful when it comes to Willie, inviting his friends to the house for a birthday party and even going so far as to enter the village art shop to buy paints for Willie, a place he has avoided as the store reminds him of his deceased wife.
I like William because of the humour and all the topics he creates as a character in the book. Summary[ edit ] In Septemberas Britain stands on the brink of the war, many young children from the cities are evacuated to the countryside to escape an imminent German bombardment.
