Floss's parents split up when she was younger and she now divides up her week, spending five days with her mum, her mum's new boyfriend and her new baby half-brother. The other two days Floss spends with her dad, helping him to run his greasy spoon cafe. But then their simple arrangement is thrown into disarray when Floss's mum decides to move to Australia for six months.
 
Floss has to choose whether to go with her or stay with her dad. She picks her dad and they muddle along happily together, surviving on chip butties and enjoying visits to the local funfair.
 
But then disaster strikes, Dad's money troubles catch up with him and they have to move out of the cafe. They're homeless - but can their new fairground friends help out?
 
This is another gripping and emotionally involving slice of family life from the award-winning, bestselling author, Jacqueline Wilson.
