Trixie Jackson has a younger sister Cilla who is simple and needs to be looked after which Trixie is very good at. While their mother Maggie was alive things at home were managable even with having to put up with their angry father Sam, who is a drinker and spends all his spare time down at the local.

When Trixie turns 15 her father Sam told her he had found her a job at a local biscuit factory. The only good thing about this job is meeting Ivy who becomes her best friend. During this time Trixie also meets Ivy's brother Jake and his friend Andrew, who she falls in love with. After Trixie is sacked from her job Sam finds her a job as housekeeper with a man Trixie does not like at all.

After a tragic accident takes Maggie from their lives and their father marries his mistress Daisy things become very difficult for Trixie and Cilla. If it was not for Jake and his mum Ella things would have been worse. Jake helps Trixie get a job that she can take Cilla to, as she cannot leave her at home with Daisy. She keeps her job a secret from her father and Daisy and not long after they find out the girls are kicked out of home. They move in with Ella, Jake and Ivy and before long Trixie realizes she is in love with Jake.

I find Rosie Harris' story a good read, nothing to rave about though and often I find her heroines naive in lots of ways and I get a little frustrated Trixie was no different but still a good read.
