World war 2 is raging in England, but Norah, from Ringden, loves it. There are planes to watch for and shrapnel to collect. But her parents don't agree ; they want to send her away from the war, to be safe. So Norah and her little brother Gavin go to Canada to live with an adopted family, lasting out the war. Norah is depressed, and just doesn't want to go to a new family.
They are in Toronto to live with the Mrs Ogilvie and her daughter, Ms Ogilvie. Ms Ogilvie is shy and never contradicts her mother. Ogilvie loves Gavin most, and Norah just can't deal with it anymore ; she just wants a friend at school, but this seems impossible : except for Bernard Gunter, the 6th grade who is always picked on?
