The book is about a young girl called Shirley, and she has to evacuate from her town because of WW2. Her dad was a solider but he wasn’t very strong. Her mother was the only person she lived with, and she was fairly kind.

Her mum lied to her and said that she was going on holiday, on a train and she had never been on one before, only when she went on a coach, to Clacton.
