Book 1 of the Acorna series. Three space miners are busy mining among some asteroids when they come upon something something apparently man-made. On investigation, they find it is some type of escape pod though they don't recognise the metal it is made from. Not only that, but once opened, they find someone - a little girl - inside. Not able to get back to their base at that stage, they "adopt" the girl, naming her "Acorna".

Soon it becomes apparent that Acorna is not human. She is growing much faster than humans do. She is learning and talking much sooner than humans do. Not only that but she seems to be growing a horn in the middle of her forehead!!!
