Sara-Ann lives with her family on a tiny Grenadine island, affiliated to Grenada in the Eastern Caribbean. Her father is the headmaster of the lone school which she attends with her older sister and two younger brothers. The headmaster is head cook and bottle washer on the island which has only one church, no police presence, no electricity and no running water. Most of the children go barefooted even to school. Because of her family's position, Sara-Ann gets to know most of everybody's business, and often gets involved in the events, sometimes amusing, sometimes tragic but always highly entertaining. Her friendship with Ruben, a thirteen year-old boy in her class, is constantly challenged by Elsie, another classmate.
