Summary
Covering roughly the first two decades of the authors life, Places is a real life story of lovelessness; depression; desperation; and abuse, both physical and psychological. It shows at times with stark vividness how insecurity, envy, distrust and lack of selfesteem can seep into the psyche of an entire family, engendering mental instability over successive generations. And it also shows how a person brought up in such a hostile and toxic environment can be hugely vulnerable when they try to make their own way in the outside world. Searingly honest, and without affectation or pretension, Places is a tough story, often harrowing and at times confronting, but it is also a story of hope and the will to survive. Despite the appalling things done to her, the young Debbie the firstperson narrator of Places never gives up hope, and seldom wavers in her belief that the possibility of a better life might be just around the next corner
