A beautifully paced and affecting tale * Independent on Sunday * Stay Where You Are and Then Leave is beautifully written, as are all John Boyne's books for children. Although it's a book aimed primarily at younger readers, it's equally as satisfying for adults, and should be widely read by everyone * Wondrous Reads * Beautifully paced and affecting * The Bookseller * John Boyne's children's novels tackle difficult subjects . . . and this latest book looks at the horrors of trench warfare in World War 1. With the anniversary of that war next year, this is a timely examination of moral, physical and mental bravery and pain * Daily Mail * Pat Barker meets Michelle Magorian . . . Comic as well as poignantly enlightening * Independent on Sunday *
