A classic war story from the award-winning author of Goodnight, Mister Tom. A Spoonful of Jam will truly capture your heart and mind. The war is over but Elsie is still fighting her own battles. She's bullied because she's the only scholarship pupil at the grammar school, and she has an awkward relationship with her father as he struggles to assume a normal life after fighting in the war. But when she begins working at the local theatre, Elsie discovers she can escape ...A Spoonful of Jam is the second of The Hollis Family books, following Cuckoo in the Nest. Michelle Magorian is one of the UK's most cherished writers of children's stories. Set in the second world war, the author of Goodnight, Mister Tom and Just Henry - both of which have been adapted for TV to public and critical acclaim - once again shows herself to be a master storyteller with A Spoonful of Jam.
