Growing up homeschooled by a single mother in the back roads of New Hampshire, sixteen-year-old Iphis escapes the reality of her home life with the help of a vivid imagination. Then, when a social worker enters the secluded home, Iphis is forced to grapple with the stories she has been told about herself and fight to become the author of her own story.
