The romeo and juliet code book report
In two cases the phrase appears twice on a single page. Flissy has found herself unceremoniously dumped. Flissy felt self-absorbed to me. Add in the near ridiculous number of secrets kept from Flissy at the start for some rather shaky reasons they didn't tell her that her sick cousin lived upstairs for what reason exactly?

I have an unattractive habit that comes out whenever a book starts to grow repetitive in some way. That would be between pages It seems unfair that my attention was first drawn to The Romeo and Juliet Code because of its cover. She is a big fan of the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, and proud of Britain's involvement in the war against Germany. I remember when Jillian Osgood guessed how many wellies were standing in the hall of the school and she was off by two dozen. I have an unattractive habit that comes out whenever a book starts to grow repetitive in some way. Enjoying it, however, will have to be taken on a case-by-case basis. Enjoying it, however, will have to be taken on a case-by-case basis. Both books begin with girls sent to live with hitherto unknown uncles and who discover hidden male cousins who have an inflated sense of their own physical uselessness. Also lurking in the household is Derek, an adopted child who lost the use of his arm to polio and refuses to exit his room. Winnie and Danny drop off Felicity and her beloved companion, the stuffed bear Wink with Danny's family, whom Felicity has never met before. Apparently not. Her initial homesickness and loneliness are partly appeased when she starts uncovering the secrets lurking in the house. But I did wonder what kinds coping mechanisms kids really did utilize during the war. But aside from this little mistake, The Romeo and Juliet Code is definitely not a book to be missed.
Then they come back full force. But I did wonder what kinds coping mechanisms kids really did utilize during the war.

The odd speech patterns that attempt to be historically accurate but feel as if the writer is trying too hard. Also lurking in the household is Derek, an adopted child who lost the use of his arm to polio and refuses to exit his room. For ages And each time one of these letters arrives, he does the same thing, but then Flissy notices that he would later cross the beach outside the house and disappear. Reading an advanced readers galley of the book I was convinced that this had to be a typo of some sort. What did bother me was the rest of the novel itself. And then there's the unseen recluse Captain Derek, yet another mystery for Felicity to figure out. Phoebe Stone poignantly and repeatedly portrays the three coping mechanisms that Felicity uses to help her adjust and to keep hold of the life she had with her parents in London and to keep her fear for them under control. I had a hard time believing that Flissy was English. But as much as it is a mystery, it is also a book the impact of the Second World War on one 11 year old evacuee. The American family appears eccentric and secretive. The passive protagonist. Rowling recalls British writers like Charles Dickens and J. The book will find its audience, there is little doubt.
Suffice it to say, the plot involves family skeletons, espionage, codes and decoding, romances, performance, Parcheesi, courage, polio, friendship, and World War II history.
I saw many, many of them getting on trains in London, waving good-bye to the mums and dads, going alone to the countryside to get away from the bombs. They then leave to go back to England or so Felicity believes.
The problem is that even though Aunt Miami constantly performs Romeo and Juliet at home, she has terrible stage fright. She is a big fan of the Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, and proud of Britain's involvement in the war against Germany.
As historical fiction goes, this does not go to the top of my list.
The plan works but Flissy and Derek are no closer to knowing anything — the letter is written in code - nothing but a bunch of numbers. This does explain a different problem I had with the novel, though. Then, Felicity, or Flissy as The Gram immediately nicknames her, is told she must never go into a certain locked room nor is she to disturb a mysterious person called Captain Derek, locked away in his own room, until he is ready to come out.
