Cleo, abandoned by her mother, is faced with the most primitive level of survival, unless she learns quickly. But at the young age of 12? Extremely challenging, not to mention 24/7 threatening events from every quarter.
Klass does a splendid job balancing the oncoming challenges of street life with the growing resilience of Cleo as she quickly realizes her survival depends upon rapid learning and knowing. On the run in the shadows of society, and deprived of the benefits of public education, Cleo must create her own system of learning, if she is to pass or fail the real tests of survival on her own. And Cleo's learning goes beyond the confines of a textbook or the bureaucratic bounds of organized schooling.
Baby Girl - In The Beginning has a storyline that becomes believable as Klass paints the unfolding events page by page for the reader. Her characters quickly came to life and as a reader I began to embrace each one. The author has a knack for hooking lots of emotion between the pages to keep readers wondering where things are headed for the story and characters.
Having read As Snow Falls, another novel by Klass, I'm not surprised that she knows how to keep readers entertained as her stories unfold. Baby Girl 1 left me wanting to know the full outcome of Cleo's drive to survive. My Kindle is loaded, waiting for me to continue the series, and Cleo's suspenseful journey.
Five-Stars for Baby Girl 1, and the fine job author Elle Klass did writing a highly adventurous read! Keep us entertained Ms. Klass!
Overall, I think this short tale is a good introduction, it is well written with realistic characters and plenty of emotion.
Criticism: The writing is well done and grammatically correct. It flows well. However, it does need some editing. I am going to make some suggestions to the author privately. Do not let small things that need tweaking distract you from a great story.
The Big City offers an escape from prying eyes and our little girl survives pretty well considering what might have happened. She finally meets some other runaway kids and they become a family. Cleo and her friends make do as best they can, keeping one step ahead of capture. With Einstein she has a solid friend and they make big plans to leave America. Yet the path they all walk is never easy.
With a new identity the story will continue in the next book.
This review is based on a free copy of the book given to me by the author.
