The Govie-ee: My Hell of a Life
by Jeff M. Maritz
Once removed by welfare from their abhorrent family, Mike, his brother Steve, and sister Elise find themselves locked up in Govie-ee, the infamous reform school in South Africa.
It didnt take long for them to realize that Govie-ee was nothing but another hellish episode in their young lives. They were rescued by an aunt, but not before living through the abundant horrors of the place. Aunt Carolines is not exactly paradise, but it offered enough comfort for them to resume their lives with some semblance of normality. Indeed, Mike would have much to say about his aunts family, especially that part about his cousin, Tina.
Mikes own household, Aunt Carolines family, the Govie-ee, and even Army life become fertile grounds for extreme experiences, and Mike details most of them in this installment.
