Quatrième de couverture :

FEATURING A PLAYLIST AND READING GROUP MATERIALS (in a roundel)
'Superb. Absorbing, suspenseful and with a beautifully poetic touch' Nathan Filer, author of The Shock of the Fall
July 1940, the Suffolk coast. England is under the threat of invasion. In the dead of night, a German Nazi officer swims up to the shore and breaks into a boarded-up house, only to find a young girl, an evacuee, hiding in the attic. Eleven-year-old Lydia is on the run.
He tells her he won't hurt her, but she cannot leave the house. Over the next five days, Lydia is held hostage in her own home. There are certain rules she must follow. But what is he doing there? And how does he know so much about Lydia's family?
Eerie, thrilling and piercingly sad, The Dynamite Room explores, in the most extreme of circumstances, the bonds we share that make us human.
'Accomplished, resonant and surprising, and poses some delicately handled questions about whether redemption is possible, and at what point a good heart becomes forever besmirched' Jill Dawson, Guardian
'Ambitious and often gripping [with a] tense and dramatic climax - a very promising first novel' Observer

Présentation de l'éditeur :

July 1940. Eleven-year-old Lydia walks through a village in rural Suffolk on a baking hot day. She is wearing a gas mask. The shops and houses are empty, windows boarded up and sandbags green with mildew, the village seemingly deserted. Leaving it behind, she strikes off down a country lane through the salt marshes to a large Edwardian house -- the house she grew up in. Lydia finds it empty too, the windows covered in black-out blinds. Her family is gone.
Late that night he comes, a soldier, gun in hand and heralding a full-blown German invasion. There are, he explains to her, certain rules she must now abide by. He won't hurt Lydia, but she cannot leave the house.
Is he telling the truth? What is he looking for? Why is he so familiar? And how does he already know Lydia's name?
Eerie, thrilling and piercingly sad, The Dynamite Room evokes the great tradition of war classics yet achieves a strikingly original and contemporary resonance. Hypnotically compelling, it explores, in the most extreme of circumstances, the bonds we share that make us human.
