Growing up in a small homogeneous town leaves its mark on a girl. A mark that only becomes visible after she leaves Lilly Whiteville, that is. Which maybe goes some way towards explaining why so many in her situation never want to leave their peaceful little place, the one that looks so much like them, for any reason ever. And why they languish in a sort of permanent state of nothing much until death takes mercy on them.
