This historical fiction book is a great coming-of-age story set in England after WWII. I learned a lot about what it was like in England after the war; there were still major shortages and there was unrest about Communism. The young men in the story are trying to find their way in the world, but they're also finding out how ugly the world can be. I came to really care about the characters and what happened to them.

The story starts after all but one character has died. It keeps the reader trying to guess what happened, and there is some irony at the end. I would recommend this book to students in middle and high school.

Time Bomb is, simply, a superb book that I unreservedly recommend. Great characters - schoolboys during a long hot second world war summer - in a riveting situation: they find an unexploded bomb in the piece of land they treat as a playground. The bomb is the catalyst for everything; but around the schoolboys spins the rest of the world - their arguing secretive parents, their teachers and choirmasters, and best (or worst) of all, the engimatic Cap, who works his way into their friendship and enlists their support. While the plot works perfectly, the period details are just as good. Though ultimately meant for teenagers, I'd recommend this book to anyone. In a world of adults who read Harry Potter without shame, there surely must be a small space on large bookshelves for Time Bomb. Bravo!
