At ten, Penny knows what it’s like to hunger, both for food and security when her father loses his job and the little money they had left. But when her brother runs away to spare their parents and try to save himself, he implores her to do the same. Pen flees reluctantly, and soon discovers she’s way in over her head. But there’s no turning back.
But she’s not the only child with a dangerous and terrifying future.
Sally Flood knows hurt and pain, too. At thirteen, her alcoholic mother gives her up to the wicked and sadistic services run by Madam Maisie for money to get by.
Yet through a strange twist of fate, Penny and Sally become fast friends and allies in a shocking world of desolation and despair; a dark world where men seek girls in the seedy underworld of London.
But over time and as they grow, one thing is certain: where there is heart, there is always hope.
And with hope, they both might just find love and security where they expect it the least and escape the tragedy of their pasts behind.
