Like Mother, Like Daughter by Maggie Hope
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Young Cath, aged 11, realises their life is a hard one and their mother unstable. When she walks off with baby Timmy and returns without him Cath knows things are not right. The years go by and her mother eventually leaves home altogether. Cath has some fast growing up to do and some nasty bullying to survive, but survive she does and builds a better life. This is good, gritty, dramatic stuff. It was originally published as The Pitman’s Brat by Una Horne.
