In the chaos, a terrified, golden-haired girl pulls street-thief Baby from certain death. But Blackshirts overpower them and seize the girl.

J.M Carr hated writing at school, groaned every time she had to read to the teacher and used to think she didn't have an imagination. So although she's always loved stories, it took her a long time before she got round to writing any. But thanks to technology, being able to decipher her handwriting is no longer a problem, and instead of no imagination she's discovered that sometimes she has too much...
She's old enough to have worked in Woolworths, was a terrible waitress, cleaned up after old men in a council home one summer holiday, signed people on the dole in Maggie Thatcher's Britain, designed wedding invitations and sewed what seemed like miles and miles of curtains. She's also been a teacher (key stages 1 and 2) and community worker. Nowadays with making up stories, she marches, gets her street together in an annual street party, knits furiously and sews. She has four Wonder-full grown up children and lives in Southampton with Cindy the dog and her equally Wonder-full technical support. Check out her author site.
