So there is this drug, called Goblin Fruit. No one is sure, how they make it. After few uses, or just one, if you have genetic disposition, you get catatonic. Even after few years, people can't touch users or catatonic people, there is still enough drug in the sweet, that will make you crave it.
Story is mostly told from two perspectives. Clarity lives in one of the centres, that houses such people. Her mother is catatonic. Audrey and her brother had a band and were touring, getting quite known. Until he become catatonic too. He is house at the same centre at Clarity's mom. Audrey comes to visit her brother one day, and the girl meet.
They become friends, helping each other and try to find clues to save their loved ones in old song.
I love the story, it's about drugs, friendships and family. I couldn't put it down. It's a bit spooky at times. :)
