Oblivion

By Sasha Dawn

One year ago, Callie was found in an abandoned apartment, scrawling words on the wall: "I KILLED HIM. His blood is on my hands. His heart is in my soul. I KILLED HIM."

But she remembers nothing of that night. All she knows is that her father, a reverend at church, is missing, as is Hannah, a young girl from the parish. Their disappearances have to be connected. Since that fateful night, Callie's been plagued by graphomania—an unending and debilitating compulsion to write. The words that flow from Callie's mind don't seem to make sense—until now. As the anniversary of Hannah's vanishing approaches, more words and memories bubble to the surface. But digging up buried secrets might be Callie's biggest mistake.
