Sheba Brown is a rebellious school girl who tries to get into everything but gets into nothing. In fact, all she gets into is trouble; together she and her misfit friends; the Paulettes, the beautiful but misguided Delilah and melodious Melody, negotiate the antics of school life, music, fashion, love and the racism synonymous with the 70s.
In this coming of age story, all Sheba wants is to become English and marry Michael Jackson, but at school she is stuck in the bottom stream and the future looks bleak. When the Jackson Five come to town and play Wembley, she sees her chance to make her dreams come true.
