When Megan’s father finally returns from Occupied Germany in the years following World War II, she should be pleased – shouldn’t she? But she hardly knows her father, and his arrival means moving out of Nana’s house into the city. Megan hates the changes to her life, yet when she has the opportunity to be the first member of her working-class family to go to Grammar School, it is her dad who is behind her all the way. Can Megan adapt to her new life, and take advantage of a changing Britain?
