Bess spends her days apart from the rest, listening to other girls talk about the life she’ll never have. At home, she endures the withering indifference of a mother whose hand she has never held. Her only comfort – an adoring father who stares from behind tired eyes that hide a secret she never saw coming. What Bess doesn’t know is there are dark corners in the world beyond her worst nightmares, where survival comes at a price that she is not willing to pay.
