Popular cheerleader and beauty queen Abby Furlowe has it all - until she notices some spots on her skin. Numbness, fatigue and weakness follow. The final diagnosis? Hansen's disease, a.k.a. leprosy. A high-school leper... During her recovery, she becomes aware of who she really was before; now on the other side of the fence looking in, Abby doesn't like what she sees.
