Summary
When Mikey Cuddihy was orphaned at the age of 9, her life exploded. She and her siblings were sent from New York to board at experimental Summerhill School, in Suffolk, and abandoned there. The setting was idyllic, lessons were optional, pupils made the rules. Joan Baez visited and taught Mikey guitar. The late sixties were in full swing, but with total freedom came danger: there was little pastoral care and teachers were sleeping with students. A child left alone and far from home, Mikey navigated this strange world of permissiveness and neglect, forging an identity almost in defiance of it
