Floss loves spending weekends with her dad in his greasy spoon cafe, even if it isn’t the smartest place in town and only has three regular customers. Even Floss’s best friend Rhiannon turns her nose up at it. When Floss’s mum and her new husband move to Australia, Floss faces a difficult choice, but decides to stay at home with Dad. He’s not much good at ironing school clothes or putting up garden swings, but they muddle along happily on a diet of chip butties and candyfloss from the local funfair. But then disaster strikes and they find themselves homeless. Will their new fairground friends help out? Could Dad and Floss be destined for a life on the road?
A wonderfully moving and brilliantly entertaining story of family life from the Children’s Laureate, Jacqueline Wilson.
