Good Morning, Midnight: A Novel - Lily Brooks-Dalton

It was a day or two later that he found Iris - hiding out in one of the empty dormitories, curled up on a bare bottom bunk mattress, left behind like a forgotten piece of luggage. He squinted at her for a while, unsure of his own eyes. She was small, maybe eight years old - Augue wasn't sure - with dark, almost black hair that fell to her narrow shoulders in a tangled mass. She had round hazel eyes that seemed to be looking everywhere at once, and there was an alert stillness about her, like a wary animal. She was so still, in fact, he could almost imagine that she was a trick of the light, but then she moved and the metal frame of the bunk groaned beneath her.
