1946. Europe is in ruins. Millions dream of finding happiness somewhere else, and 14 year-old Felix is one of them. When he's offered a journey to somewhere far away, he seizes the opportunity. So does someone very dear to him, even though she wasn't actually invited. They have high hopes for their new land. But before Felix and Anya can embrace the love and friendship of their new world, they must confront the murderous urge for revenge still alive in the old. Felix knows he hasn't faced anything like this before. He may not survive, but he's hoping he will. Maybe.
About the Author
Morris Gleitzman is the author of Toad Rage, Once, Then, and Now.
"While this book is perfectly understandable as a stand-alone title, it will be best appreciated by readers of the earlier volumes who are invested in the saga and who will find this title a clever and satisfying way of coming full circle." —School Library Journal on Now
"Sequel to the searing Once, this tale of young people trying to survive in Poland during World War II is equally powerful.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review of Then
"In a conclusion both devastating and hopeful, the innocence and maturity of Felix's narrative voice conveys human resilience when faced with the impossible.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review of Then
