Madeline White was adopted at age thirteen by Amy Rose, a middle-aged woman without much family. The woman she lives with has a whole new system that Maddy isn't accustomed to. Four years later, something happens. Maddy has had a strong "bond" with Mother. She's never had to share her mother with anyone and I mean anyone; until Mother finds a man. The attention Maddy is given has subsided, and all her Mother's attention is focused on the man. But as jealousy rises, will she deal with it, or do something she'll regret?
