Has your life ever been full of question marks? Such as “What is my next meal going to be?” “Where am I going to sleep tonight?” “Where am I going to live?” or “Why is this happening to me?”?
Lillian Brown is a girl of only 12 years and has already asked herself these questions so many times. Her home was destroyed in a fire two months ago- The same fire that killed her family- and she has to go live in an orphanage. But, during the time of the Great Depression she knows that the orphanage can only feed a limited number of mouths. So, thinking that in leaving she would make things easier for the orphanage, she sets out with the orphanage’s camping tent, her blanket, and a small amount of food, to make her own way in the world.
This is her story.
