The Wonder Girls by Jan Carr
Ida and Baby. Two girls fighting to save their world. Each with their own take on the rise of fascism and the darker aspects of life for children in 1930s England class-driven society.
Grief, anger and resilience shines through as we learn about the stakes made by them both as they strive to escape a fate, unknown by the girls to begin with, but sinister and unrelenting in its power as it becomes more and more apparent that all is not what it seems.
J M Carr’s fantastic descriptions and highly-relatable characters will leave every reader unwilling to put The Wonder Girls down.
It has a way of grasping you as soon as you read the first page, pulling you into the turmoil and journey made by everyone she has created in this exciting debut.
