A fascinating and poignant account of the author's emigration to England with her family in the 1960s. The story: When young Floella Benjamin came from Trinidad to England live in England in the early Sixties, she was leaving behind a joyful, tropical paradise. She was already proud to be British, but how could Britain be better than home? This true story contrasts the warmth and colour of Trinidad with the cold, grey of Sixties London, where Floella learns to come to terms with -- and to overcome -- prejudice and rejection she and her family encounter. Themes: Prejudice and emigration; experience of growing up; school, families and relationships; women's roles. The curriculum: Covers both the travel-writing and autobiographical categories of non-fiction required by the National Curriculum. Multicultural Ideal for KS3 (P7,S1,S2)
