England, 1914. Poppy is fifteen, beautiful and clever, but society has already carved out her destiny. There's no question of her attending more school; it's too expensive and unsuitable for a girl. Instead, Poppy will become a servant to the aristocratic de Vere family . . . and bury her feelings for their youngest son, Freddie. It doesn't matter that Freddie seems to have fallen just as hard for Poppy. He could never marry a girl like her.

But the set path for Poppy's life is irrevocably altered when it becomes clear that the war isn't going to be over soon. The chains of class, wealth, and her gender no longer matter--England needs every able bodied person to serve in battle in some way. Which, for Poppy, means volunteering on the front lines as a Voluntary Aid Detachment nurse. As she experiences what people are capable of--the best of humanity and the very worst--Poppy will find an unexpected freedom and discover how to be truly her own person.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 7 Up—Fifteen-year-old Poppy is a parlormaid for the aristocratic DeVere family in World War I-era England. She longs for more than her current status will allow, both in terms of romance—is Frederick, the family's younger son, romantically interested in her?—and ambition. She soon joins the Voluntary Auxiliary Service (VAD) as a nurse. Suddenly, she is thrust into a whole new world, learning how to care for the sick and horrifically injured soldiers who have recently come from the front. And then there's Frederick, whose letters and words seem to hint at wanting more than just friendship. As Poppy navigates her way through caring for injured soldiers and the minefield of social status and her own heart, she hopes to find her place in the world. This is a beautifully written novel by the author of Newes from the Dead and Fallen Grace. Poppy is intrepid, if a bit naive, and wholly likable. Her experience with the VAD is realistically drawn and very readable, and the descriptions of the soldiers and their stories are highly compelling. The romance is a bit rushed and forced, and the ending leaves a wide opening for a sequel. VERDICT Historical fiction lovers will gobble this up and ask for more about Poppy.—Necia Blundy, formerly at Marlborough Public Library, MA
