Lovely story by Elle Klass. I have read all the stories of the author and every single one of them are well written and is a pleasure to read. This story is the first of the series about a girl called Cleo who was left to fend for herself by her mother. She sets out to discover her roots and finds people whom she associates. You will get to know about her adventures in this fascinating story.

Cleo lives with her mother and doesn't know her father. She lives a very sheltered life, besides going to school. They have a very simple and somewhat poor lifestyle except for the odd occasions, when her mother would disappear for a few days and return with food and clothes.

Cloe is now twelve years old and when her mother goes absent for longer than usual, she decides to pack up and run. During that time, she learns how to fend for herself until she meets others who are in a similar situation to hers, including Einstein who is the oldest and assumes the role of their leader.

Cloe and Einstein make plans for the future to keep them safe but just when they think everything is going to plan, something goes drastically wrong. Even though, it's a short part of the full story, everything runs smoothly and falls into place. It's a very emotional read. I am really looking forward to read the next part.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Baby Girl - In The Beginning is the first in a series, and the author, Elle Klass wastes no time thrusting the reader into the spellbinding story. The setting is one that most will never experience, and one that no one wants to experience. Don’t let the title, Baby Girl, fool you. This is a thrilling young, and new adult read, one fully loaded with the burly experiences of life.

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!

I’m not typically a huge fan of short stories because if they are good, they always leave you wanting more. I want more. Baby Girl is a short story and the first book in a series. Klass did a good job of capturing the reader’s attention from the very beginning. The story line and character depiction was well written and held my interest until the very end. I look forward to discovering the next phase of Cleo’s life in Book 2. If it’s as good as Baby Girl, it’s bound to be a hit.

This is the first in a series of short stories about Cleo and the struggles she faces in her early life. Here in the beginning she is 12 and living a tough lonely life when abandoned by her mother. She has to fend for herself and decides to run away.

Elle Klass has written a powerful start to her series. The character thought processes and the range of emotions conveyed are brilliantly expressed. She manages to make readers fell empathy and concern for Cleo and the other street children who feature in this book. I look forward to the next in the series.
