14-year-old Mavis Jackson has always felt stupid. Mocked by the kids at school - as well as her mother Lily who constantly scorns her for her clumsiness - she is devastated when her only ally, her father Ron, leaves the family in search of work and to cure himself of his gambling addiction. Left at home with Lily, Mavis is forced to walk the streets in search of junk which her mother can sell. The future seems very bleak indeed. Until an unexpected fairy godmother arrives in the form of Edith Pugh. Struck down with a debilitating illness, she needs help around the home. In Mavis, she sees the perfect solution. Especially as she has ulterior motives! Meanwhile, Ron has fallen off the wagon and, distraught at his weakness, he jacks in his latest job soon becoming a vagrant. Best mate Pete is forced to break the terrible news to Lily. Back at Edith's, Mavis is enjoying being useful and Edith is even teaching her to read. But when Edith reveals her true motives for taking Mavis under her wing, she faces a monumental decision, one which could change her life for ever!
