"As far back as I can remember, I've always felt there was something different about me. My family. It was the concerned looks my parents would give each other when I'd ask them the wrong question, and the fearfulness I witnessed at family gatherings. I thought I had suffered all I could stand after my father died, and my mother moved us to this remote little town out in the cornfields, but I was wrong. When I was seventeen, I was hit by a truck and almost died, and what I overheard while coming out of a coma was so . . . humiliating, I - I just couldn't face my friends," Melissa tells the writer, Kinzey White. "I'd like to hear the whole story, if you don't mind. Why don't you start from the beginning?" Kinzey switched on the recorder and poised her pencil to take notes.
