When Pearlyn’s father was convicted of daylight robbery, her world fell apart. Her father was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment. Pearlyn won the RHB scholarship and got a place to study in Red Bridge Primary School. Her mother decided that it would be a chance for them to migrate, so that Pearlyn could grow up without the burden of a criminal father weighing on her back. Thus, they left Pearlyn’s father and grandparents, and their life in Malaysia, for Singapore. However, words got around and their neighbours avoided them due to their past. Pearlyn had to struggle with the stares, glances and snide remarks made by the other pupils. Would she be able to gain her classmates’ acceptance?
