I choose Goodnight, Mr. Tom. I loved, loved, loved this one. This book is set during World War II in England. Need I say more? That would be enough to get my attention at least. I also loved, loved, loved the movie adaptation of this one!!!

Thanks for recommending this one--I went and found it and I loved it! The characters were great and it was interesting how the author had them deal with difficult situations. A great book that I probably wouldn't have found out about otherwise, so thanks again!
