Publisher's Summary

Baby is 12 years old. Her mother died not long after she was born, and she lives in a string of seedy flats in Montreal’s red light district with her father Jules, who takes better care of his heroin addiction than he does of his daughter. Jules is an intermittent presence and a constant source of chaos in Baby’s life - the turmoil he brings with him and the wreckage he leaves in his wake. Baby finds herself constantly re-adjusting to new situations, new foster homes, new places, new people, all the while longing for stability and a 'normal' life. But Baby has a gift - the ability to find the good in people, a genius for spinning stories and for cherishing the small crumbs of happiness that fall into her lap. She is bright, smart, funny, and observant about life on the dirty streets of a city and wise enough to realise salvation rests in her own hands.

gripping, vivid and intimate storytelling

great book and great performance: thoroughly enjoyed this book. It beautifully captures a child's innocence, resilience and optimism in the face of a dysfunctional family and society that does all it can to corrupt her.
