Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Adrianna arrives on Casey's doorstep with no possessions, no English, and no explanation. It will be a few weeks before Casey starts getting the shocking answers to her questions....
Brought to Casey as a short-term emergency placement, 14-year-old Adrianna arrives with nothing but her gratitude. Having turned herself in to a social services office some 100 miles away, she has no possessions, no English and, apparently, no history - not that she's willing to share, anyway.
She is a beautiful young Polish girl, with the bearing of a ballerina, but is terrified, malnourished and unwell. And, having slept rough for some time (the little they do know about her), she spends much of her first days with Watsons asleep in bed.
Growing concerned about Adrianna's well-being and her persistent high temperature, Casey decides to call in the GP. But, to her surprise, Adrianna becomes almost hysterical about being examined and, given her refusal to talk - even via the interpreter they've brought in for her - Casey's fostering antennae begin twitching. Where has she come from? And why is she so terrified to be touched? What has happened to make her so ill and scared?
It will be a few weeks before Casey starts getting answers to these questions. Shocking answers - ones that throw up a whole host of new questions and the beginning of a journey to find justice for Adrianna and, more importantly, a future and a home.

Please change the narrator

I've never left a negative review for anything before but this narrator is the worst I've ever listened to. Her accents are terrible, and in some cases, offensive. Constant unnecessary pauses. Emphasises words where no emphasis is needed. Overall it's seriously grating to listen to. I enjoy Casey Watson's stories but won't buy any more if they're by this narrator. I can see by other reviews that people agree with me

couldn't finish...

story isn't bad but narrator is so incredibly annoying i couldn't listen till the end. reading slows down to unbearable pace and voice goes from loud to whisper for no apparent reason, horrible imitation of polish accent..... first negative review i ever gave but very disappointed.
