About this product
- DescriptionI ought to tell you at the beginning that I am t quite rmal having had a violent experience at the age of nine' Jessica Vye's 'violent experience' colors her schooldays and her reaction to the world around her- a confining world of Order Marks, wartime restrictions, viyella dresses, nicely-restrained essays and dusty tea shops. For Jessica she has been told that she is 'beyond all possible doubt', a born writer. With her inability to conform, her absolute compulsion to tell the truth and her dedication to accurately ting her experiences, she kws this anyway. But what she doesn't kw is that the experiences that sustain and enrich her burgeoning talent will one day lead to a new- and entirely unexpected- reality.
