June Foster’s summer is limping along. Her life on a 1950′s farm in eastern Washington is boring–full of milking cows, picking apricots and tending to the chicken coops. Her only friends are her record player and her books. But when gorgeous, turquoise-eyed Frank falls into her world, her life becomes anything but ordinary.
June falls for Frank hard and fast–he’s beautiful, impossibly strong, and capable of things ordinary humans are not. But she’s wary about his father Jonas, a creepy man with an agenda. She should be. Suddenly June is deathly ill, falling in and out of consciousness. When she recovers, June and Frank discover Jonas’s deadly plans for her–and June takes revenge.

Her tiny body jumped and rippled, 
finally coming to rest in the chair as Doc Crouch
flipped off the dial and the voltmeter fell back to zero,
My son cried even harder.
"You're hurting them!" I screamed.
"That was only a mild chock." A coy smile passed across the Doc's face.
