The House I Grew Up In

The House I Grew Up In-- a personal essay about the trials of growing up middle class in an upper class society. An authentic great read!

The house I grew up in was not a house. It was a two bedroom condo with one bathroom, one living room, one kitchen and one dining area. The apartment complex was very safe, gated from the upper middle class streets of the area. I grew up roller blading, swimming and playing tag in these …
