The house we grew up in

To celebrate the release of Lisa Jewell's new book, The House We Grew Up In, we asked you to send us pictures of the places you grew up. Scroll through a gallery of the ten shortlisted photos below.

Lisa Jewell had great trouble picking one winner from the fabulous entries, but she eventually decided on eatyourveg (number five in the carousel). Lisa explained her choice, saying: 

"I love the brilliant accents of the white house, the white confirmation dress and the white daisies scattered across the bright green lawn. White was so much whiter in those days and blue was so much bluer. I also love the bittersweet tribute to the house itself, the sense that the house itself is irrelevant, it's the lives being lived inside its walls that make it a home."
