You really get a feel of British culture from this young adult book called 'Blowing Out The Moon' by Libby Koponen,and it is a wonderful story of an American family's 6-month stay in England and it even tells and has pictures showing how the Brits always hold their fork in their left hand and the knife in their right and they push the food onto the back of the fork to take a bite, can you imagine eating peas that way? She mentions that,LOL! Has several things about what they will or won't say or do in certain situations that are quite different than how Americans would do. Loved the story's school setting, and the info about the schools.

Highly recommended for all ages and especially for Anglophiles.
