PunchThe age-old theory of nature vs nurture collides with reality in this shockingly believable account of AVA (an intrinsically good sociopath, kidnapped at birth), THAN (born into a good-to-a-fault Christian family, who needs pain to balance his life), and ESME (the well-meaning and under-rated orphan) as their lives intertwine in unexpected ways. Same town, very different lives, and coming of age against a backdrop of polar realities and a perceived sense of normal, each attempts to make sense of their world through examination of self-suffering, light and darkness, and internal and external pain.
