Learning to be Little
Unexpected Consequences 3
An only child born to two only children, six-year-old Kelly Franklin finds herself at the mercy of the state when both her parents are brutally murdered. As a difficult, unwanted child, distrustful of strangers and haunted by gruesome blood-filled nightmares, Kelly's nightly screams of terror frighten the other children so badly, she becomes more trouble than any foster family was willing to take on.
When Child Services attempts to place her in a Residential Treatment Center next, Kelly's growing mistrust has her running away again and again. Homeless and penniless with no relatives to harbor her, and a penchant for escaping her caretakers, Kelly is finally handed over to one of the few parish orphanages remaining in existence until age at 18, when she is released.
Possessing only a little money, few skills and even fewer resources, Kelly's attempts at job hunting end up with her prowling the streets in desperation until a wealthy stranger makes her a proposition she is too cold and hungry to refuse. Though, it isn't until he takes her home that she realizes just what it is she's gotten herself into.
