The Forrester family are slowly winning their fight for survival. But 14 year old Helen's personal battle is to persuade her parents to allow her to earn her own living, to lead her own life after years of neglect and inadequate schooling while she cared for her six younger brothers and sisters. Her untiring struggles against illness caused by severe malnutrition and dirt (she has her first bath in 4 years), and above all the selfish demands of her parents, make this story of amazing courage and perseverance both heartbreaking and inspiring.

As usual a very interesting read from Helen Forrester. Very discriptive and i am sure it gives a good reflection of hard times not just in Liverpool but many parts of the UK during the war years

Liverpool Miss by Helen Forrester was an excellent story and well worth reading. a second hand book that was nearly new but kept you turning the pages.

A good autobiographical read. True to its period and very evocative of the times it is set in. One really wants to know the rest of this writers story.

Helen Firsts has always been a favourite author of mine...the whole series of her life books have me held where other books do not. Worth a look.

Very moving account which clearly highlighted the stupidity of the class system. The parents were bordering on criminal and if the saying of you only remember the good times is true then this must have been a harrowing childhood. These autobiographical accounts of Liverpool in the thirties should be mandatory reading for today's 12 to 14 year old`s. We have a lot to thank those who introduced the current social system. Flawed it may be but we never want to return those dark days.

Brilliant book, I enjoyed reading it. Fast and easy read. Probably all the autobiography books should have been written as one book.

A really enjoyable read, Would recommend to others. You can really get the feel of how things were before the second world war.
