Martha Horgan is a young woman who has been treated all her life with a mixture of fear, mocking and mean-spiritedness simply because she is odd and doesn't fit in. Kimberly Schraf catches the tone of those who taunt Horgan and drive her to the edge of desperation. Schraf skillfully develops Horgan's voice and personality as a neurotic reflection of the traits and personality of those "normal" people who have influenced her. Schraf narrates in a manner that adds dimension and realism without overreaching. Her speech patterns and cadence suggest a character suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder, who can't process the subtleties or ironies of those around her.
