I remember reading the above books when I was at school but can't remember what age. Do you think they are suitable content for a quite mature 10 yo. Both are quite sad in places but she isn't easily upset - read Black Beauty and the Railway Children without a sniff hmm iirc. I would like to get them both for christmas.

Carrie's War is fine - I read it at 8ish. How about Goodnight Mr Tom too?

wikifreak I think that might be 'the siver sword'? About a group of kids treking across Poland I think

Yes, absolutely.

I loved Walkabout when I was nine or so. Yes to Goodnight Mr Tom.

Also Charlotte Sometimes and Daddy Long Legs.

I am David is the trek one, I think. Also, Back Home, Friend or Foe, and Going Back could be worth a look.
