16-yr-old Alison has been sectioned in a mental institute for teens,
having murdered the most perfect and popular girl at school. But the
case is a mystery: no body has been found, and Alison's condition is
proving difficult to diagnose. Alison herself can't explain what
happened: one minute she was fighting with Tori -- the next Tori
disintegrated. Into nothing. But that's impossible. Right?

When Alison meets Dr Faraday, a visiting psychologist, she feels an
instant connection. More, he believes her story. But there's more to
Faraday than Alison can possibly imagine ... and the answers he will give
her are ... extraordinary.
