Atlanta : Peachtree, 2004.
by her mother at age four, Charlie didn't have a great start to her life.
She has been living with her father, grandmother and uncles in Dublin.
Her family will never talk about her mother or about that night ten years
ago when she was left at the train station with her father's telephone
number in her pocket. And now, Charlie is the subject of bullying
at school. The girls are absolutely heartless. They have found
out about her past and call her all sorts of names, including Abandoned
Baby. Things just keep getting worse and Charlie is more desperate.
She is keeping this all to herself but it is showing. She's losing
weight, pulling her hair out and chewing her fingers. When will anyone
see what she is going through? When will someone help? Or is
it up to her to end the misery?
