Meet Buffy By, a poor girl in rich Oslo. She's useless at ball games but naturally gifted when it comes to slalom, the world's third most expensive sport. How will it all work out? Class 6B at Refstad School have to write their autobiographies. Buffy By would rather write about slalom – or be out practising slalom. During a free course during winter break, she turns out to be a natural talent! It's just a shame they don't have enough money for the training fees – or skis or poles or skiwear or anything else, in fact. But Buffy By doesn't let that put her down. And she always has a good idea or three. You can't find many books about poor children in Norway these days. But here comes Buffy By's autobiography and there's nothing like it! – Bobby and I don't have much in this world. Many in our class have parents, maybe divorced, but parents all the same… they have at least two grandparents. Sometimes they even have a great-grandparent. If their parents are divorced, they have half-siblings, stepsiblings, stepparents, grandparents through their stepparents. Bobby and I – we have Mum, Lillie By, the prettiest mum in Oslo. And then there's Jimmy Jeeves, dad of me and Bobby, but he has not been seen by anyone since Bobby was born.
