Quote #10

And I was shaking and I wanted to be back at home, and then I realised I couldn't be at home because Father was there and he told a lie and he killed Wellington which meant that it wasn't my home any more, my home was 451c Chapter Road, London NW2 5NG and it scared me, having a wrong thought like I wish I was back at home again because it meant my mind wasn't working properly.

Finally, Christopher begins to feel betrayed even by his own mind. If anything's going to scare him, it's that.
