Brianna Nelson was born under a "Blue Moon". Her psychic grandmother, Lilly, predicted that Brianna would "Walk under the Blue Moon" which would prove to be a difficult path. And Lilly was right. Brianna was raised by Mel, her alcoholic father, who could be nice when sober but mean and unpredictable when drinking! Brianna's life was dysfunctional; often she didn't have food to eat, and she was embarrassed to bring any friends home in case her father was on one of his 'rants'. She did the best she could to survive a life without a mother and without help, a life where she often had to be the parent, buy the food and clean the house!
