Firefly lives in the park across from her mother's home. It's safer there. But after the Bad Night happens and her mother is taken away, Social Services sends Firefly to live with her Aunt Gayle. She hardly knows Gayle, but discovers that she owns a costume shop, The Corseted Lady.
Yes, Firefly might get used to taking baths, sleeping on a bed again and wearing as many costumes as she can to school.
But where is home? What is family? Who is Firefly, for that matter...and which costume is the real one?
