I hoped the Nazis would be defeated.
And they were.
I hoped the war would be over.
And it was.
I hoped we would be safe.

‘Haunting... dangerous and desperate, but also full of courage and hope.’ The Guardian
Having survived the holocaust, Felix is facing new challenges as he tries to rebuild his life in Poland. He is determined to find his family and uncover the truth about his past. He also has to navigate the complex realities of post-war Poland, where anti-Semitism is still prevalent.
With its powerful blend of humour and heart, Soon offers a unique perspective on the aftermath of the Holocaust and the long-lasting impact of trauma, and it is a powerful reminder of the resilience and hope that can be found even in the darkest of times.
‘Morris Gleitzman has discovered the difficult trick of changing reality so that poignancy and laughter are never far apart.’
