About Nellie and Me brings together two touching stories of young people growing up in the big city.
A Home for Nellie
A smuggled kitten, a "no pets" rule and the story of Nellie McClung push Sharon into action in her housing project. It looks as though her older friend Mrs. Davis will lose her kittens unless a way can be found to get the rules changed.
About Clocks, Candy, Bullies and Me
It's an ordinary day. The alarm clock crashes into Billy's sleep, his mother nags him, and once again he has to face Larry, the neighbourhood tough guy. But when Billy returns to the apartment, things are anything but ordinary. His brother is home from training school and his father is coming for supper. That evening the family must decide: should his father come back home to stay?
