Narrated in the first person, it is the story of Caithleen, who at the beginning of the novel is a year-old girl living in an Irish village, and at the end an year-old in Dublin, abandoned by her first lover. The consciousness of a girl as she becomes a woman is not, however, just the subject of the book, it is also the effect of its style. Caithleen's half-childish, half-adult consciousness of things is enacted by the narrative. The novel's very title implies an uncertainty about how adult she is. This is picked out when her "best friend" Baba proposes that they run away from their convent boarding school together and join a travelling show company.
