Second Hand Kid


Craig Sodaro

Published by Dramatic Publishing

3 Male 4 Female

When longtime widow Connie D'Amato decides to take a foster child, she gets a whole lot more than she bargained for

Instead of the the 10-year-old "Shirley Temple" she was promised, Connie's charge is 16-year-old Lisa, a repeat offender who has a history of addiction and abuse

Connie's 27-year-old daughter, Angela, takes an instant dislike to Lisa ... and for good reason

Not only does the teenager upset a monotonously secure routine, she also brings new problems

Her vicious brother, Ed, shows up to "keep an eye on Lisa"

What's worse, Angela catches Lisa stealing Connie's meager savings

Only Papa, Connie's father-in-law, is able to touch Lisa across the generations

Eventually each character must make a decision - and none of their lives will ever be the same
