    Another fantastic book by Kitty Meals.I d love to no where she gets her ideas for her books.Millie has a tough life, after her mum dies, she s got to do all the house hold chores, and when her and her brother find out why there mum did what she did, her brow leaves home as well.Her father is dispicable, the scrum of the earth, and what he goes on to do you won t believe.Millie has a breakdown, but you could say it s the start of better things to come Janet DaviesFalmouth Cornwall

    This book is sad but has you enthralled and you don t want to put it down The story of Millie and her family must resonate with people born in the 50 s, but not all of them would have had their experiences.
