Because of the potato me and my family left our home and travelled 6,000 miles to find a new life....
Slim Hannigan and her family are poor but happy. Theirs is a life filled with love and laughter - and a pet pig called Hamlet.
But things change overnight, and suddenly they find themselves facing hunger and danger like they have never known.... So they leave their village in Ireland to journey to America, where, they hope, family and fortune await them.
Slim soon finds herself living a life that feels just like one of those far-fetched stories her Da has always told. Can one brave girl keep her family together no matter what is thrown at them....?

"Adults should read this too..."
You won't be able to get Slim and her family out of your head for days. I hope there’s a sequel.
Yes, I was surprised by this book. It moved me to tears several times and gave me laughs and goosebumps!!
the factual nature of the subject matter that was humanised by a wonderful family.
Her accent was authentic and she acted all that parts perfectly.
It was a time of Love, It was a time of famine, it was time for and adventure....
I wish there was a book two...
