goes to move in with her mother and her boyfriend that always smells of
cigarettes and booze.
Later on in the story a man named Mr. C moves to the complex where her

cop” “dues he too believe that she killed her grandmother like all her
neighbors” “all because she has unusual eyes”.

children with her same unusual eyes. So now the question remains. Will
she find them? Will they be like her? Will they ever still be alive? And
