"The seated child. With a single powerful image, Deborah Ellis draws our attention to nine children and the situations they find themselves in, often through no fault of their own. In each story, a child makes a decision and takes action, be that a tiny gesture or a life-altering choice."--

The collection of short stories in 'SIT' by Deborah Ellis is throughly enjoyable.

In every story, a chair in some form is a key feature. The chair appears in far away places, such as in India, where a young boy works in a factory that makes chairs to the everyday "Time Out" chair.

Ellis revisits the first story at the end of her collection and includes a follow-up story with the young Indian boy.

Choose any story at random and enjoy!
