Margot's family all died in an auto accident, but somehow, she was thrown from the vehicle and survived. Placed in a residential facility, she was given a private room as she screamed all night from nightmares. This did not endear her to the other girls who lived there.
A family chose her to come live with them, at first seen as the father felt he owed it to Margot's deceased father to take her in. At second glance, it might not have been the favor she thought it was. The family's daughter needed a companion and though she was not communicative, Margot felt the choice to stay was slightly better than the only other choice, which was to return to the residential facility; something to be avoided at all costs.
Looks interesting, but more YA than I usually read.
