Floss's parents are divorced, and she divides up her week, spending
five days with her mum, her new stepdad and her baby half-brother.
The other two days Floss spends with her dad, helping him to run
his greasy spoon cafe. But their simple arrangement is thrown into
disarray when Floss's mum decides to move to Australia. Making the
difficult decision to stay at home, Floss moves in permanently with
her dad and they muddle along happily together, surviving on chip
butties and enjoying visits to the local funfair. But 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?
