Dad went on a trip today. I'm not sure when he'll be back but nobody will tell me. Me and my brother wanted to play cricket, but Mum couldn't let us out because of all the men with guns.

Dear Diary
My name is Izzy Le Fallows and I am 12 years old. I'm a boy from Surrey who loves school. My school has been closed because of the men shooting each other at war. I've been helping my mum around the house but I've heard that you have to fight at war when you are a boy like me. My brother has already been sent away but I'm dreading being taken away. Recently I've been helping at Dad's shop in the village keeping sales up for the family. I watched the soldiers march heavily down the fields to battle.

I dream of seeing my dad but I really don't believe I'll see him again.
