Shirley Lancaster and her sister, Carole, were eight and seven respectively, in the 1940s when their wayward seafaring father abandoned them, leaving them homeless and practically destitute. Living like nomads for the following few years, their mother constantly looking for somewhere to live after a hard day's work, this book presents a vivid picture of working class life in Essex in the immediate post-War period. Eventually the family moved into one room of their maternal grandmother, but life was never easy. Whilst the younger sibling suffered badly and withdrew into herself, Shirley put her own spin on life and embarked on a series of adventures and misadventures with the law and society as described in this vivid and moving book.
