Beth In | 2 comments Girl goes to live with relatives, doesn't connect with them. She makes friends with an odd boy, family warns her against friendship. She meets him secretly in the woods at the end of her street. Something happens, they end up in the woods together, he dies. Maybe he tried to kill her?

Beth, are you still looking for this book?


message 3: by Beth (new)

Beth In | 2 comments Yes! We never figured it out. Do you know what it might be? We concluded that we must have mixed two plots from different books together.

No, I have no clue what it is. But bump the thread once a month, maybe someone will recognize it, or recognize whatever two books you are lumping together!

Anna | 207 comments Your description has elements of Back Home by Michelle Magorian, a YA book which was published in the early 90s - Rusty, the main character, is a teenage girl who was evacuated to the US during World War II, and comes back to England when the war is over. She finds it difficult to readjust to life in the UK, and is eventually sent away to boarding school. She meets a boy from a neighbouring school, who does not get on well with his peers - he was also evacuated to the US, IIRC - and starts meeting with him in the woods at night.

Neither of them die, but perhaps that came from another book!
