Isolated and sheltered by her lonely, overprotective mother, Maura has always lived the life of an outcast in their small hometown of Indiana, Pennsylvania. There is something about Maura that seems to drive her classmates away, but is it more than her extreme pallour and disease-like aversion to sunlight? Growing up without ever knowing her father has made life painful and confusing for Maura, especially since her mother seems unable...or unwilling...to disclose many details about him. But life is about to become even more bewildering when her mother's abrupt decision to move a country away sets off a chain of events that will change Maura forever. A cruel prank turned deadly, the discovery of love and friendship....and its loss, as well as a web of her own mother's lies, become obstacles in Maura's desperate search for a truth she was never prepared to uncover.
