Twenty-two-year-old Honor Melanie (Mel) Sullivan has an affliction. Due to childhood trauma and inappropriate social behavior, she is diagnosed with Asperger's, a form of autism. But Mel knows Asperger's is not her true affliction. She prefers not to gaze into a person’s eyes because she is a soul reader, and what she sees can be frightening. It can also get Mel into trouble.
After a brush with the law, Mel leaves her family home in Southern California and travels to Oregon, where she meets Harley Davidson-riding William McCarty (Billy the Kid) and stumbles upon a human-trafficking/baby-selling scheme involving a foreign girl from Kazakhstan and others.
Even though Mel's life is in danger, she won't stop until she finds the answers that will help those unable to help themselves.
