Seventeen-year-old Molly Fisk does not go outside. For so long she has run away from a moment long in the past, but she's not running anymore, she's hiding. Ruled by anxiety, she can only stare out the window of the tiny tourist-town museum she and her mother call home, longing to go outside --- to maybe take a walk with the cute boy who works in the pizza place across the street.
Then the chance arrival of a woman Molly knew years ago changes everything.
Back then, Claire Rodriguez was an empty shell. Only in the unique friendship she struck up with a little girl --- a silent girl who'd only talk to Claire --- did she see the possibility of healing. But one day the girl and her mother vanished, their house left abandoned.
