    This emotionally challenging book from Irish writer Marita Conlon McKenna tells the story of Katie a member of the travelling community Katie appears a happy young and carefree girl at the beginning of the story enjoying all that life on the road has to offer However tragedy strikes and their caravan is burned Katie must then face a future in a house and attend school without the presence of her fatherI first read this book while I was at primary school but after rereading it recently I feel the message of the book remains the same It gives students the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of how the travelling community live their lives and the many struggles they may face I would recommend using this book for upper key stage two

    I was ten when I read this book I remember wanting so badly to be a Gipsy and telling that to everyone I knew My dad told me I wouldn`t last a day without TV and that I could never be a Gipsy because he spoiled me too much Two days later the power went out and I started crying because by the time it came back the show I was watching on Cartoon Network was already finished Point proven
