Piggy Monk Square

Grace Jolliffe

A light read with a dark secret. A tale of innocense and harsh reality.


Extract

She won't answer me cos she's playing a funny game. It's called pretend 'Rebecca isn't here'. I don't like this game and she won't stop. The salt cellar is a bit like an Egyptian Pyramid only with stripes on. I suppose it's quite nice really but we've had it for ages, so I don't know why me Mam keeps on looking at it now as if she's never seen it before.
