Book Review: An Unlikely Spy by Terry Deary

An Unlikely Spy, Paperback / softback Book
Click here to order a copy from hive and collect from your local independent bookshop.

The story begins in England at the beginning of the Second World War. Brigit Furst is the daughter of Aimee and Marius, who we met and shared their adventures in “The Silver Hand”. Brigit’s father is German, he’s a doctor and has lived in England for many years but that doesn’t stop Marius being interned and Brigit being bullied.
After running away during the chaos of evacuation Brigit meets up with her mother at a very special training camp where Churchill is building a secret army of spies and saboteurs known as the Special Operations Executive. Aimee is half French and still speaks the language fluently. After completing all the training, Aimee and Brigit are dropped by plane in Northern France to stay with Aimee’s mother and start a local resistance group, but will anyone suspect Brigit is a spy? She’s only a child.
Lots of adventures follow with many references to “The Silver Hand” and Brigit, Aimee and the local villagers trying to stop the German advance.
As it says at the beginning of the story they all “Did their bit”
Terry Deary peppers the book with Churchill’s speeches and quotes and this great adventure sheds new light on the S.O.E. and the Second World War in time for the 70th Anniversary of the outbreak of war in September 1939.

I really enjoyed this story, and as it’s written by Terry Deary you know that it’s going to be factually correct. It also made me think about how “Walls have Ears” and the S.O.E. would work with social media and the internet in the 21st century. It does work as a standalone book, but I managed to get “The Silver Hand” from the library and read that first.
“An Unlikely Spy” was given to me by the publisher for a unbiased and frank review.
