Life in small town America is hard for Jane. On top of the usual teenage troubles with peers and homework and boredom, Jane lives alone in a strange old house with her invalid mother. Her mother has been near catatonic for years, afflicted by some strange wasting disease. It's only Jane who keeps her alive, day in and day out. Day in and day out. Day in and Day out.
But then one day everything changes. A new girl shows up in school. Her name is Sabrina and she sees something in Jane that she doesn't even see in herself.
Their friendship will push Jane to unearth the mysteries of her mother's past and the dark history of her missing father. Forced to face a monstrous lineage, Jane will have to make decisions about just who and what she wants to be.
