Really enjoying this - thank you. Being at home as a day girl should give Cecil a good chance to get to know her parents better as an individual rather than always as part of a crowd, which should help her feel stronger and more secure in herself.
I'm just slightly worried about the last sentence and implications of needing reassurance in the future, but I guess being a day girl won't sort everything all at once and she's still got to deal with the bullying Jocelyn (if I've remembered her name properly).
I'm afraid nothing is sorted out that easily. It would be nice if it was. Poor Cecil has a lot to ge through yet!

I think your Maynards are just brilliant - no more perfect or all- knowing than the next person, but they are just doing their best. Thank you.
Its how I read them anyway. Thanks Kathryn

I am loving this story, Myth Tree, especially Reg - he's so lovely! And I like the way he described how he and Len grew close, it seems much more natural your way :)
Not only have I always liked Reg but I used to think he was too good for Len. I've had to do a bit of rethinking for this. Thankyou Finn, your stories are so good I'm flattered that you like this.

Very nice take on Reg

Now that really is a much better slant to the whole Len/Reg thing. Thanks Myth Tree
Thanks for commenting- that's always how I saw he Len/Reg thing so it's always come as a shock that others don't!

Glad you are going on with it
Thanks for your comment. I've finished the draft now so updates should be more evident.

Really well shown, thank you. As I said, your Reg is lovely. What a good idea about the Peters! Also sometimes trust is more inportant than telling, as long as he continues to help her. Thank you.
Thank-you. I did have problems with this bit as I wasn't sure that Reg shouldn't get straight on the phone to Miss A.

Cecil is of an age when confidentiality is important. He did not say he might have to share at the beginning so he had to have Cecil's permission to speak to someone else about it. Tha School needs to know, but until Cecil agrees to them knowing.
Thank-you for your comment. I'm glad you are nderstanding why Reg didn't say he had to tell.

Reg is definitely between a rock and hard place there. I think we (and Cecil) have to trust him to take her feelings into account while telling Len the minimum he thinks she should know about the situation without betraying Cecil's trust.
Thanks, Myth Tree - I'd missed this when I first started and have just caught up from the beginning.
Thank you for responding. I think Reg manages well- and a lot better than I would.

Thanks, am really enjoying this. I can relate to this as I'm the middle child of an equally large family. Cecil's take on her older siblings and working out who to reveal what to is dead on. Thanks

this is very good
I can guess what book Reg is going to lend her in the previous section
