    1. I can see her taking herself off to her grandparents until everything has been settled. Maybe her parents will even realise how their battling is affecting her! I’m glad you enjoyed it, Jessie. 🙂

    1. I meet quite a lot of children who are caught between battling parents. I always find it quite heartbreaking. I’m glad you enjoyed the story, PJ. 🙂
