Sheryl Russels is blind. The same accident that caused her blindness also killed her parents. So now she's a blind orphan. A few years later, she's still in foster care and about to go to public school for the frost time in years. Upon her first day arriving, she meets Simon, who surprisingly becomes Sheryl's best and only friend she's ever had since the accident. Sheryl's arrival at the school isn't the only thing interesting happening at the school though; the body of one of the school's very own is found. Under the bridge. Floating in the water. Sheryl is intrigued by the dead girl, and makes it her obsession of discovering things that should get her silenced. Permanately.
