Then something happens that forces Gavin to make the most difficult decision of his life.

It was REALLY good. It's more about Norah's brother Gavin -- the war's over and he's deciding to stay in Canada or return to England. In the end, he ---- NO WAY AM I TELLING YOU, READ THE BOOK!!!!! I also really like the symbolism of this title. I wish she made more, the great depression happens right after, it'd be so cool! Oh well, READ THESE. Then again...I'm only a 13-year-old girl. Hope that helped!! :) <3
