Barbara, caught up in a demonstration, goes "round the corner" and arrives in the 1930s in another demonstration. In this time-shift story a homeless girl finds a home and family in the midst of the worst depression. Her new family live at Poverty Gully - a camp in the central tablelands of NSW.
Just shut your eyes and picture yourself walking around the corner. that's what my friend told me. Somewhere around the corner and you'll be safe. the demonstration was wild, out of control. Barbara was scared. She saw the policeman running towards her. She needed to escape. She closed her eyes and did precisely that: she walked somewhere around the corner - to another demonstration - to another time. Barbara was lucky she meet young Jim who took her out of this strange, frightening city to his home. It was 1932, when Australia was in the grip of the depression, and Jim lived in a shantytown. But Barbara found a true friend and a true home - somewhere safe around the corner. Ages 12+
