Jessie is an aspiring actress who has moved to London to try to make a breakthrough into the big time but is finding the going tough. She has to work in a hotel to make ends meet and is about give up when she stumbles, with the help of her friend Curtis, on a novel way of using her acting talents for gain. Jessie's series of imaginative scenarios, designed to help her clients through sticky patches in their lives, are brought alive vividly in this entrancing tale. Underlying it all is a tender, understated love story. Jessie's story is told in her own words, in a colloquial form of Gaelic which will enhance its appeal to both fluent speakers and learners. There are chapter-by-chapter glossaries and summaries to help the latter.
