Ava Rose Wibbell is a girl who has never felt like she fits in. She has a large number of close friends, a father, who loves her, and a small community that has watched her grow from infancy to adulthood. And that close-knit, small-town community adores both Ava and her father. But even with the seemingly perfect surroundings, Ava can�t help but notice the odd things that happen around her. For instance, the way people fall in love with her without knowing a single thing about who she is. She starts to recognize the peculiar reactions everyone has when she�s in their vicinity�reactions that aren�t exactly normal human behavior. And then there is the way her father always seems to be waiting for something, waiting for Ava to do something, or be something other than what she is. She can feel his eyes searching her for some change, but she has no idea what he is expecting to happen. She begins to piece together the puzzle of who she is, and when the picture finally becomes clear, the truth will change her life forever.
