I decided to read this book because I wanted to learn about the history of New Zealand and we were learning about this event in class. My favourite quote from this book was "I will have the quote in here by Thursday" Something new I learned from this book was about this certain time in history and the way people lived. This book gave me a sense of the setting and where these people lived. A character I liked in this book was Peter because he was so determined and such an intelligent young man. T [...]

interesting how things have changed in the last 60 odd years. St John cadets were apparently taught to put a persons broken leg back into the correct position - ouch!!! and how to give injections! Napier Boys High use to allow the use of guns for target practise!Interesting what the main character does at scouts too - probably mostly interesting to me as I am a part of Scouts. Also interesting as I live where this book is set

This entire series is a wonderful way to learn history or teach it to adolescents. I find today's generations seem to recall more when they learn through other people (pop songs, celebrity gossip, etc.), so what better way to teach history than through someone else's perspective? Yes, "authentic" diaries would be "better", but would the language really hold the modern student's attention? Did the diary writer know what WOULD be important in the context of history? Probably not.

A pity I can't give a 4 1/2 stars.I purchased this book for my son, and read it myself.Not so much about the Tangiwai disaster, but about live in New Zealand in 1953. I found this book very interesting and the diary format used, makes it readable, esp for children who don't like long chapters. A worthwhile read for all ages - plus the print is a good size.

David Hill does a fine job of giving us some solid historical background while he tells this story. For those of us who already know what happens at Tangiwai, there are no surprises, but this is a delightful cameo of life in small town New Zealand in the early 1950s.Peter, the 13-year-old diarist is thoroughly believable, and a nice boy. This is an excellent read.
