BLURB

We are the Hideaways; Mum, Dad, my little sister and I, we live in an old pantry. Yes I know what you’re thinking a pantry? A small cupboard where you keep food and old things? You live? Yes we live amongst the second-hand goods, old ruined sweatshirts and can foods. Now you must be thinking, how does a grown family live in a two-foot wide cupboard? Well … that can be difficult. Mum said occasionally on her trips to ‘The Outside’ she would loose her balance and fall, believe me it is the most painful thing to hit a tin lid from a great height! Sometimes I get stuck between the cans and have to heave myself out. But, as my dad always says, “It’s not the size of the person in the fight, It’s the size of the fight in the person.” I hope my dad is right as us Hideaways are only 4 inches high. [Ellie Strange]
