[[" Unsex me here, And fill me from the crown to the toe top-full Of direst cruelty; make thick my blood, Stop up the access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between Th' effect and it!" -Lady Macbeth]] In a poverty-stricken liminal space known as the town of Sorlen, Nebraska, sixteen-year-old Erin is trying to navigate love, life, and the implications of the young man who her brother is torturing in their basement.

Chapter 1

I’m going to talk about the dead kids, but not in the order they died in.

The first of that summer was Matt Tummler, whose goblin-brother Solomon was my best friend.

Solomon was covered in warts, and he had a little brother for four years before Matt was run down on the great highway.

The next dread kid is Danny, who I'm not ready to talk about, yet. He drowned and it was sort of our fault. Not all the way our fault like the final one that summer, but still sort of our fault.

The second to last one was Mark, but he was the least important of them all.
