During the time of Hitler, 11-year old Ada, who is “Special”, in other words crippled has a mom who thinks that she is a disgrace to the world and every time she speaks against, one night sleeping in the cupboard under the sink. Ada’s brother James went to school found that there was a train going to London, to get away from the bombing. Ada’s mom only wanted James to take it and Ada not to, but Ada snuck out with James and took it to London where they were evacuees with a woman named Susan, at first Susan did not want children, but she was forced to take them because no one wanted them. Ada did not like getting everything she felt like she did not deserve it, because of the way her mom treated her. The time she was staying she learned to sew and ride a horse, she also was starting to learn to read and write but she refused to get tough. Then HItler started to attack so people went to every home and built a shelter to go in and every night london forced the town to blackout their home so Hitler would not see them. But when Ada went into the Shelter it smelt like the cupboard under the sink and cries herself to sleep, with Susan holding her super tight. After a while Ada excepted Susan and stop rejecting all nice things. In the end Ada’s mom did not want children and her husband was gone so Ada went to live with Susan and James in London.
