Bad Little GirlBook - 2017
Little Lorna Bell is from a notorious family on a rundown estate. Everyone thinks she?s a nasty piece of work. The schoolchildren call her a thief. But Lorna?s hair is matted, her shoes pinch her feet and school teacher Claire Penny can?t help herself; some kids just need a bit more support, a bit more love, than the rest. As the bond between teacher and pupil grows stronger, Claire sees Lorna?s bruises, and digs to uncover the disturbing tale behind them. Heartbroken, Claire knows she has to act. She must make Lorna safe. Just when Claire thinks she has protected Lorna, a chance encounter brings enigmatic stranger Marianne Cairns into their lives. Marianne seems generous and kind but there is something about her story that doesn?t quite add up. Why does she feel so at home, and why is Lorna suddenly so unsettled? Claire has risked everything to save Lorna. But what can save Claire from the shocking truth?
