Young Sky is tired of being treated like nothing. She was never treated like that from her parents. Her parents loved her, these people didn't. Carl and Carrie never truly loved her or cared for her. She had to fend for herself from the moment she walked into that house. She had never thought that one day her parents would be gone and she would be in such a terrible place. Sky was spoiled, innocent, and fragile when she first went to her new home, but now she is strong, brave, and selfless. She wants her family back more than anything, but everyone knows that won't happen. She thinks of doing something to change things around there but she was always too afraid to take action. Join Sky as she tries to find a way out of the hell that she calls home.
