August Books 31) Back Home, by Michelle Magorian

A slightly grim tale of 12-year-old Virginia, known as Rusty, who returns to her family in England in 1945 after five years in America, and finds huge difficulty in settling in (to her mother's distress, she refers to America as "back home"n hence the title) and then faces further trauma of a repressive boarding school and her parents' disintegrating marriage. Oddly paced in places, but has the courage of its convictions.
