I really like this one! I can’t tell from the hook who Barbara is, as others have said, but it’s quite clear she’s young.
The tone is also hard to pick up – it starts out light and happy, ribbons and all, then it’s wars and (presumably) death. Perhaps that’s deliberate, or maybe I’m overthinking it.
But I’d definitely pick it up if I saw it on a bookshelf!
