The Kevinian cult has taken everything from 17-year-old Minnow. And when she rebelled, they took away her hands, too. Now their Prophet has been murdered and their camp set aflame, and it's clear that Minnow knows something --- but she's not talking. As she languishes in juvenile detention, she struggles to un-learn everything she has been taught to believe. But when an FBI detective approaches her about making a deal, Minnow sees she can have the freedom she always dreamed of --- if she’s willing to part with the terrible secrets of her past.
