This story, formed as a letter, is inspired by ‘The Jennifer Pan Story’. A tragic True Crime case that divided opinion.
I’ve tried to understand and I think I now do.
Many despise you. They cannot comprehend what you went through that lead to their murder. But the impact your parents had on your life: You never stood a chance.
You tried to get good grades. You tried to come home early. You tried to obey.
You were forbidden to wear makeup. You weren’t allowed any friends. You were only allowed to study. ‘Jennifer’ didn’t matter.
You matter to me. My book will tell the truth and I’ll make people see.
So, hang in there….
….We’re getting you out.
