Childhood and Adolescence
In her own words. Christie described her childhood as “very happy.” She believes that the environment she was brought up in defines who came to be. She lived with strong and independent women who surrounded her from her very young age. She was among the very many people who believed that her mother was a psychic and that she had an ability of what they referred as second sight.

Unfortunately, her parents could not afford to pay school fees for both Agatha and her sister so they decided that Agatha should receive a home education. Her parents, therefore, were responsible for teaching her how to write, play piano, and read. She defied the odds and started to read well much earlier than many had anticipated. She was a voracious reader at her early ages and mostly read children books.
