Abstract:

"Agnes has been drifting away from herself. People look through her, her husband doesn't understand her and lately, she's begun losing the sensations in her body. When a tube of shoplifted lipstick awakens her back to life, an impulse for stealing emerges that leads her to a court-ordered service at a camp for grieving children. Hopeful the time there will help make the stealing stop, when the spirits of the campers' parents realize Agnes can act as a conduit to their children, she has to navigate using her compulsion to either feed herself or help the bereaved.

It asks what it means to exist in lives filled with loss and to reach for the things we hope balm us-both in our material lives and the ones we pass through"--
