For Anna, the family farm has always been home... but now things are changing.

Anna's mother has died, and her older siblings have emigrated, leaving Anna and her father to care for a young sister with special needs. And even though their family has worked this land for years, they're in danger of losing it as poor crop yields leave them without money to pay their rent.

When a violent encounter with the Lord's rent collector results in Anna and her father's arrest, all seems lost. But Anna sees her chance and bolts from the jailhouse. On the run, Anna must rely on her own inner strength to protect her sister—and try to find a way to save her family.

Written in verse by a master of historical fiction, A Slip of a Girl is a poignant story of adversity, resilience, and self-determination that paints a haunting picture of the tensions in the Irish countryside in the early 1890s and the aftermath of the Great Famine.
