Alone. An idea Shelly enjoys . . . or at least she used to. But now that she is truly alone, and after Jay forces his way into her life, she’s not so sure. Curiosity sends this introvert on a search for family. But then she finds more than she bargains for.
Shelly never saw the need for companionship outside of her father and Professor Yates. Now her father is gone and Professor Yates is pushing her to step out her front door, out of her comfort zone. Then there’s Jay. His comfort zone includes the entire universe, and he is bound and determined to drag Shelly along with him.
In honor of her father’s memory, Shelly picks up one of their old pastimes, genealogy. She figures it would be nice to know where she came from. It would be nice to belong. What would it feel like to belong?
Everyone seems to have a place in the world where they belong. Except Shelly.
