She is not who she thinks she is. Her true identity is a mystery.
Trapped in a cellar by a man she does not know; a young girl is forced to act out the life of someone she has never met to stay alive. When she escapes, she finds herself on the run, confused and questioning her past. With the help of Bobby Houndstooth, a teacher she once knew, and Nutt, an android who loves to dance, Silon begins to unravel her true identity and a mysterious relationship she has with a sinister corporation.
Silon must decide if she is the person others expect her to be or if she can become a person of her own making.
Even if it kills her.
“I like to imagine that foot is resisting him, fighting his advance. That foot knows better.”
“It’s almost six. I can feel it. He will be here soon. I must get dressed now.”
“My room is dark but not the kind of dark you see when you close your eyes.”
“This look, this feeling I have of what’s to come, may never heal. I must stop looking at him, so I close my eyes tight. So tight, I can’t feel anything.”
