First published in 1995, this touching autobiography is a unique record of the experience of immigration from one of Britain's best-loved television personalities. When Floella Benjamin first came to England from Trinidad in the early sixties, she hadn't seen her parents for fifteen months. At first, her joy at being reunited with her mother overcomes the shock at her new surroundings in cold, noisy London but when she starts school she is upset by the taunting and rejection she faces. Determined to survive, Floella realizes that the only way is to be twice as good as everyone else.
