Summary

Nothing is as vivid, or as strange, as the memory of our school days. As a child Georgia Blain craved normality. With both parents in the public eye and the 1970s in full swing, she dreamt of a family more like the versions depicted in her mother's weekly newspaper column. At the end of her primary years, Georgia is given the opportunity to reinvent herself, change schools and begin Opportunity Class, only to discover that all environments expose Strange Times. From the acclaimed collection of true tales Births Deaths Marriages.
