As a white South African I was amazed at the very real racial divide which existed in the south in the Fifties: I was not aware how deep the differences between white and black ran.
(Personally, I found it heart-warming that Daisy often brings up movie titles and film star names of those days -- days when we worshipped Hollywood instead of TV stars!)
The story does contain a few impossibilities, such as the trout fishing competition where Daisy Fay and her father defrosts a old trout, insert false eyes, stuff it with buckshot for weight, and pass it off as a "champion catch"! Surely the judges must have smelled the fish and distrusted the look of it!
Towards the end of the book things went a little too well for Daisy, but she's a girl with such guts that one can only clap hands for her! Buy this book and have a few hearty laughs.
