Do you ever page through the family photo album? Children’s faces smiling in full sun, happiness and idyll... And do you remember the first plan to off the old folks? The never-ending wars with your mates at school, the bewilderment and fear as your body suddenly started to change? You won’t find it in family pictures. The story of Mickey House will remind you what it is really like to be a child. Everyone lived through this and has something not to be proud of.
