Dustbin Baby

April doesn’t know who she is. She was dumped in a dustbin as a baby, fourteen years ago. After years in and out of foster homes, she’s finally settled with a new foster mother, Marion. But who is she really, and where did she come from? One day, April decides it’s time to find out. The journey to discover her roots will take her to all kinds of sad, happy and unexpected places – but will it bring her what she really wants: the truth?
