Sample text

Dad told me and Gary to go into the lounge and, as we did, I could hear Agnes try again. ‘I’ll just take Tracy,’ she said breezily, as if my dad’s previous rebuttals had never happened. ‘I can make sure she gets to school tomorrow and then pick her up afterwards. She’ll be fine with me, Harry. ’ Those words are imprinted on my mind. We don’t remember everything about our childhoods, but there are some scenes we all keep locked in our memories as if they happened only yesterday. That one, the one of my mother being taken away on a stretcher and of Agnes trying to get me away, is burned in my memory.

CHAPTER 3 BEING A GOOD GIRL After it happened, I wasn’t quite sure what to think. I was only a little girl, barely more than five years old – looking back with the awareness and understanding of an adult is completely different. At that age, all I knew was that my mummy was in hospital and my daddy had turned horrible, seemingly overnight. I didn’t really know anything about bodies or the birds and the bees, I didn’t know anything about what grown-ups did with each other in private – but I did know that what my daddy had just done was horrible.

I said, desperately wanting to cry. My mum was ill, my dad was swearing at me, my brother was calling me names, and my world seemed overwhelmingly horrible. I grabbed my homework jotter and books from where Gary was sitting, ignoring the fact that he was sniggering at Dad’s treatment of me, and ran down the hallway to my bedroom. I threw it all down onto my dressing table and flung myself on the bed. Just as I did so, I heard a horrendous crack and saw flashes of light. This was a ghastly night and it was getting worse.
