I've heard a lot about Worrals over the years. It's a title I've sort of brushed into contact with, having read a lot of Girlsown, and so, when I received an email telling me that it was being reprinted by IndieBooks Limited and would I like to review a copy, my answer was a very positive yes.

The titular Worrals, Joan Worralson, is a pilot in the WAAF. Worrals and her best friend 'Frecks' are rather lovely creations. Vivid, hearty and hugely patriotic, they're a defiant joy. I don't think I've
Its possible my low expectations have resulted in this high mark but i'm not sure. Its a very solid spy-thriller. With a few touches of women vs male authority. I actually would have preferred if Worrals was a little older as being 18 lends an extra YA element to proceedings too, which was unnecessary.

These kind of spy adventures can be very convoluted and messy like the awful Thirty-Nine Steps. But this one is very solid and logical. Even when things go wrong, its never because of bad decision

I should re-read Worrals more often. She is simply the very, very best ever. The plot in this one is fairly cracking too.
