Title: Eleven Eleven
Author: Paul Dowswell
Book Review by Joanne Sinclair 8DP
‘Eleven Eleven’ is an amazing book set in the last stages of WW1. It tells of the dramas three young men - Will, Eddie and Axel, all from different regions, have had to overcome.
The action takes place on the Western Front during November 1918; going into detail of gas bombs and other different army machinery. Will, Eddie and Axel all come to help each other, and save each others lives. The ending of ‘Eleven Eleven’ is a surprise and I guarantee you will not expect it! ‘Eleven Eleven’ captures your attention right from the first chapter and keeps it to the very end.
