Review: Little Girl Found
Little Girl Found by Fiona Wilde
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was an interesting take on the age-play theme. Most stories that I've read in the genre have been from the perspective of an established couple who are looking to add another element to their lives, an older person seeking to find a way to help out a younger person settle and make better choices, or the historical vein where it seems to be more a matter of almost non-consent.
Little Girl Found is different in that everything not only completely consensual but also features a way to pair up young person with another adult that wants to take care of them.
Barbara is the star of the story who struggles feeling lost and it interesting to see her both embrace and yet struggle with her inner child. This is the first story in a series so the story focuses on Barbara and her search and adjustments to this type of lifestyle. My favorite scene in the story is when she is given a chance to pick out certain items that will be hers to keep no matter what she decides to do. I really loved how the writer lets us peak inside Barbara's head as she makes her choices.
While I would never desire to be treated like a young child this sub-genre can be interesting to see the ways that people play out their feelings in non-traditional ways.
