Note: 
Like many English children during World War II, the feisty daughter of a lower-class Jewish family from London's East End is evacuated when German bombing becomes imminent. Her experiences with several host families are not happy ones and she runs back to her mother several times, finally announcing that "I'm not going back." And so she stays, braving bombing raids but content to be at home. Believable characters and settings plus a vivid, humorous, and loving look at a working class Jewish family are strengths of Winrob's memoir.
