Back cover copy

My name is April. April Showers - that's my nickname at school now. At least it's better than April Fool. And it's much, much better than Dustbin Baby . . . I don't know where I came from, or who I really am. All I know is that I was abandoned as a tiny baby in a rubbish bin. I'm safe with my foster mother now - but if only I could find my real mother, somehow . . .
