Wilhelmina “Will” Huckstep is a creative soul struggling to come to terms with a family tragedy. She crafts whimsical lamps, in part to deal with her fear of the dark. As she wraps up another summer in her mountain town, she longs for unplugged adventures with her fellow creative friends, Autumn, Noel, and Reese. Little does she know that she will get her wish in the form of an arts carnival and a blackout, courtesy of a hurricane named Whitney, which forces Will to face her fear of darkness.
Laura Lee Gulledge’s signature visual metaphors will be on full display in this all-new graphic novel, a moving look at shedding light on the dark corners of life.

|This story just wasn't for me. It didn't hook my attention, and it was slow throughout the story. I didn't really connect with any of the characters, or really care much about them as the story progressed.|
The only thing that I really enjoyed were the graphics in the story. They were pretty awesome, but it didn't really make up for the fact that I couldn't get into the plot. There was also a sad element to the story that I thought was good, but again, it didn't make up for the rest of the plot.
