Nellie longs to learn to read, to be part of a family once more, and never to be hungry again. But with no job and no one to turn to, how will Nellie make her wishes come true? Meet Nellie and join her adventure in the first of fourstoriesabout an Irish girl with a big heart, in search of the freedom to be herself.
