Kay B (kay23) | 50 comments About a decade ago i read a book about:

Kidnapped girls who lived in a compound,

If they didn't do chores they couldn't eat,

Two characters named trash and firegirl.


Can someone tell me what it's called?

Middle grade? Dystopian or realistic?

Who kidnapped them and why?

Added "/prison" to the topic header/title. Feel free to update it by clicking the small "edit" link after the header. This only works on the full Desktop website - not the Mobile website or app.

Thanks but I'm not sure if it was a prison or compound

Rainbowheart | 15786 comments I tried googling, and I found a comment by another person looking for the same book.

"A middle school book. Submitted by Mik (not verified) on May 11, 2018 - 3:58pm The main characters are called Trash and Firegirl. They live in an orphanage run by the government."

Sounds like it could have been an orphanage?

Kay B (kay23) | 50 comments Well it could have been. Did that user find the book?

Kay B (kay23) | 50 comments That was me. I tried two years back but nobody responded. But it was a building of either, compound, school, orphanage or prison.

I remember she wasn't originally called firegirl. It was children's or middle grade

I read in middle School in 2009 when I was 12

Kay B (kay23) | 50 comments They were around age 6-10 when kidnapped. And they were only girls. No boys

Rainbowheart | 15786 comments Fearless?

The girls are named Fearless and Stench.

Ayshe | 4122 comments Maybe Fearless? I can't find Firegirl and Trash there, but there are Stench, Fearless, Stargazer...

Kay B (kay23) | 50 comments Yes I do believe that's it. I'll have to see when I read it though. Thanks


message 16: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart | 15786 comments Haha, looks like Ayshe and I had the same thought at the same time.

Hope Fearless is the right one. Let us know!
