Tomorrow, across England (I am not sure about all of the UK), there will be events and activities to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Victory in Europe day. The kids and I will be going to our local event site (20 minutes from the house) to see the memorial and parade.
This book, a library loan that was so random, was the closest story I had on my shelves that had anything to do with WWII and is my pick for today's reading. I am really liking it (4 stars so far) even though it is all diary entries and categorized as Middle Grade. Wished they had books like this when I was younger.
ETA: so the media and the base are advertising it as VE when it was a VJ memorial. A great ceremony and so glad I went.
