Apples to apples, dust to dust. Garrett Ives hasn't emerged from her bedroom for three days. Her best friends take shifts outside her locked door trying to convince her to let them in or, at the very least, tell them what's wrong. But why did she lock herself in her room? And why is Garrett, compulsively clean, allowing a bag of apples to rot on the kitchen table?
