Summary
Like everyone else in the Panopticon, 15-year-old Anais Hendricks has been in and out of foster care practically since birth. "Born in a nuthouse to nobody that was ever seen again," she had her only successful foster placement with a prostitute later stabbed to death (Anais found the body). She's been sent to this facility, where the inmates are under constant surveillance, because she had a bad history with a policewoman who has been bludgeoned into a coma, and Anais--almost permanently whacked on whatever drug she can lay her hands on--can't explain why she has blood on her skirt. Amid the institution's crescent-shaped buildings and all-seeing watchtower, Anais befriends a group of ragtag ruffians and delves into her past, endlessly stoned and concerned she's being watched by an entity she calls "the experiment."
Summary
Sent to a home for chronic offenders, 15-year-old foster child Anais is unable to remember the events that led to her sentencing and considers her bleak life in the hands of untrustworthy adults before discovering herself within an ad hoc family that helps her take first steps toward friendship and personal strength
