Born scared

Born scared

Brooks, Kevin, author

Elliot is terrified of almost everything. From the moment he was born 13 years ago, his life has been governed by his acute and very real fears. He lives in an isolated village in the Yorkshire Dales, and the only things that keep his terrors in check are the pills that he takes every day, and his mother, the one person he loves and trusts. It's Christmas Eve, there's a snowstorm, and Elliot's medication is almost gone. The phone lines are down. His mother nips out to collect his prescription. It's just 482 metres down the road - but she doesn't come back. Then the power goes off. Does Elliot stay and wait, or does he try and find her? It's only 482 metres. It might as well be 482 miles!
