Dayna | 5 comments I read this book in the 80's , girl lived with her siblings, I think the mother had a mental disorder, at one point the family lived in a car, then in a tent, I remember the girl was very smart, she was going to a dance and ( I forget how she got the dress) but put it in the shower to get rid of the wrinkles, she hid that her and her family were homeless from her school...any ideas?

Dayna, what's the location - country, region, big city/small town?

Who and where is her father?

How did her mother behave strangely?
