Renzy is a 19 year old senior who has been held back a couple of years because of his selective mutism. He can’t remember the exact moment in time when decided to stop talking, he just hasn’t talked in years. This has made him an outcast, invisible to others, a loner.
Until he’s in a self help group, not that he needs it, but he’s addicted, and he meets Morning Moreau-Maddox. Even though Renzy’s gay he feels a deep connection to Morning.
Morning and Seven are siblings that have lived all over the world and after Morning was raped they find themselves in a backwater town in Missouri.
Seven at first does not approve of Renzy but Morning is adamant that he’s a good person and wants him in her life and Seven relents. Through some trial and error moments the three become good friends.
After some secrets are revealed in Renzy’s family and he demands answers the three embark on a road trip that is both enthralling and horrifying in all the truths that come out. The three of them grow up during their trip, form an unbreakable bond, and make decisions that will change the course of their future.
