Back To My Beginnings
by Paddy Staplehurst
Snakes under beds. "Whippings" for bad behaviour. Uneaten meals re-presented at every mealtime until finished. Presents that mysteriously disappear after a day or two, never to be seen again. Is this the stuff of nightmares or the real thing? As a Home Girl or, as labelled by their fellow school pupils, a Dirty Smelly Home Girl, Paddy learns to stand up for what she wants in life.
