In Development

Life at the Home for Troubled Children is far from ideal, but it’s the only home Lucia knows, so she never strays too far. After a failed attempt to escape with her toad, she returns to a contentious welcome by her wild and reckless orphan brothers. Despite Lucia’s efforts to be on her best behavior and not to wake Mother, the boys make sure to torture her plenty by stealing her toad, resulting in a small death. This, we’ll learn, is one of many, and the boys will experience, first hand, the sting of consequences by a girl whose power has always been very much underestimated.
