While Justin and Marcus were found by Ben and Helena in the days after the fire, Anna (10) made the streets her home for several months after being separated from her parents. Anna was in the habit of stealing and conniving just to survive. She remains “resourceful” and must work to control her fiery temper and tendency to break rules.
Where Justin emulates Ben, Anna identifies more with Zak’s impetuousness and bravado, taking more risk that Ben might like. Anna’s independent nature often puts her at odds with Justin, who fancies himself the leader among the kids. She’s taken fondly, however to Marcus, who will go along with even the most outlandish of schemes.
