About The Unsacred Gift
When Sissy was six, she had her first vision of her sister’s (Misty) disappearance. Her mother (Tina) said she had a bad dream, but not long after that Misty vanished before Sissy’s eyes. No one believed her, so Sissy acted like everyone else. Like she never disappeared. Like she never existed.
Sicily “Sissy” Monroe attends the University of Washington, majoring in Psychology. She has all the makings of a perfect young lady, ageless skin, flawless long black hair, full kissable lips, and eyes shaped like almonds. But deep lying in the pupil of her eyes holds something she cannot get rid of, which is interfering with her plans.
For years Sissy tried to avoid having friends and relationships because she feared their fate. Most importantly she tries to avoid her family. She has no plans of ever going back home to California. When her mother calls her to tell her about her granny’s birthday party, she is reluctant to go. Going back home was not on her list of priorities, but she is going for her mother.
During her weekend at home, new developments surface. Her mother has been dating (Mark) for the past two years, her grandmother has the same gift she does, an old high school fling (Chris) comes clean about his love for Sissy, and an unknown girl from the grave begins stalking her dreams. Sissy begs for someone to admit her to the hospital, but she just can’t get the words out. Her grandmother is the only one who can help her, but even then it’s too late.
Two days after her birthday party, Sissy’s grandmother dies leaving Sissy alone once again. Sissy has no one to turn to, but she will soon discover that her sister Misty, the visions, and the dreams of the unknown girl were just a mere image of herself.
