Tilda is an astounding book that kept me engaged throughout the story. Tilda is a stubborn girl who refuses to believe that her Papa has left her orphaned. She is convinced that he will return from war, but Sister Agatha thinks otherwise. Additional to the suspense and shocking plot twist , there was humour that had the story flowing. A distinct message in the book was to never give up hope. It painted a vivid image in my mind with its detailed description. Quoted by Megan Daley, ‘Tilda is all grit, resilience and heart’. Overall, I adored this book and would recommend it to ages 8-12 with a 5 out of 5.
