Will end her misery with a few seconds fall into the cold sea. Except shes not quite ready to die. A half days delay to try a bacon sandwich from the cafe wont matter- Mothers no longer there to disapprove. She delays another day to lend Janice a book. Then a week to use her new paints. A month. Until the end of term. Mavis makes new plans: to live, to create paintings full of emotion, perhaps even make friends. As if to balance her survival a number of people connected to Mavis die. At first that doesnt matter. Theyre people she dislikes. Mavis continues painting, tending her garden, feeding the birds and keeping her home properly clean, without additional concern. Then people whove been kind to Mavis are killed or injured. That shouldnt happen. Why are people dying? Is it because of charming Norman whos back from her past, or is that strange boy Jake her mistaken guardian angel? Perhaps Mavis herself is to blame. She must learn the truth, stop the deaths and protect those shes learned to care about before she can enjoy the new life shes making for herself.
