Etan has stopped speaking since his mother left. His father and grandfather don’t know how to help him. His friends have given up on him.

When Etan delivers a grocery order to the outskirts of town, he realizes he’s at the home of Malia Agbayani, also known as the creature. Malia stopped going to school when her acute eczema spread to her face, and the bullying became too much.

Soon, other kids tease Etan for being friends with the creature. But he believes he might have a cure for Malia’s condition, if only he can convince his family and hers to believe it, too. Even if it works, will these two outcasts find where they fit in?

Here is a lyrical, uplifting story about the healing powers of friendship and empathy.
