Jen is in college, but she does not go to parties. She does not drink. She does not even eat. Her roommate, Liz, is her only friend, and even Liz is getting frustrated with her. Jen hides under her bed and she pees in her closet. She is afraid of cell phones and she thinks someone from her past is stalking her. No one, however, has seen the man she claims to be harassing her. Her mother and Liz only see self-harming, destructive and paranoid behaviors. The only person to believe her is Maxie, her new drag queen friend who understands isolation and the terror that can come from a traumatic past. Jen is going to great lengths to make herself disappear, and her mother, Nora, is too caught up in her own grief in dealing with the death of Jen’s father to notice. Liz is too busy in her own world of fraternity parties and keg stands to care. By the time they can find out the truth about what, or who is haunting Jen, she may already be gone.
