(From the publisher):
All she wanted was a mother's warm embrace....
Brooke was an orphan, abandoned long ago by a mother she barely knew. And though her new family seemed to offer the promise of a fresh beginning, a dark voice in her heart told her that she was now more alone than ever....
It was like a magic carpet to a glamorous new life....
In Brooke's most secret dreams, her mother would return to the orphanage, full of remorse for having left her there so long ago. Brooke never imagined a rich couple who looked like movie stars saying, "We'll take her," and whisked her away to be their daughter.
Yet Pamela Thompson and her husband, Peter, seem thrilled to welcome her to their huge, gleaming house. Soon Brooke is enrolled in a snobby girls school, and receiving daily lessons in etiquette. Every hour and every outfit is planned to prepare her for the beauty pageants Pamela demands that she enter and win. But Brooke just wants an ordinary life — and to play on the school softball team, where her real talents are appreciated. For only when she's on the field with her friends can she escape the dreadful feeling that she must always be obedient... or risk losing her golden chance for a name, a home, and freedom from the terrible secrets of her past.
