When four young sex trafficking victims come to the foster house—rescued from a brothel upstate—the caretakers of the house, Emmy and Oliver, are most concerned for the youngest: thirteen-year-old Franny. The child is withdrawn and fearful and panics whenever a doctor attempts to examine her. Certain that Franny is the most psychologically damaged of the four new girls, Emmy and Oliver are shaken to the core when, Amber, one of the older girls awaiting an abortion, abruptly and brutally takes her own life.
Seeking personal aid from Max and Horatio Kaplan-Raines—founders of the foster house—Oliver and Emmy quickly notice a fatherly affection developing in the men for Franny. Yet, the young girl remains distant and distrustful, even growing suspicious of her two new friends, Nina and Kelly. As truths arise concerning Franny, the four adults fear she may follow Amber’s fatal path unless they can convince her that they care about her and that she can trust them.
However, they soon discover that Franny’s fear isn’t for herself… but for someone much more precious.

Since the death of their parents when Heff was ten, Heff and Mandy were each other’s rocks. Now, at just twenty-one, Heff suddenly feels lost and alone.
