“Dear Mummy and Daddy,

If you’re reading this, I’ve ran away. Don’t bother looking for me because that’s what the bobbies will assume. If we talk or you send me a food basket, then they’ll track me down. I’m too young and pretty and innocent to go to jail! So this will have to do. I’m off to become a ninja…thought about being a pirate; but I need to learn to hide in plain sight. Promise me you won’t let Katie move into my room?

Love Your Runaway Daughter,
