IN THE DRAWING
Genevieve doesn't know if her unhappiness and feelings of not fitting in are different from anyone else on her college campus. Recovering from a break-up and struggling with depression, she takes comfort in her impulsive sketches of strange creatures to try to escape the dark cloud that looms over her. The truth? Her place in this world is a lot more complicated than she could ever imagine. With two strange men following her, vines that engulf her dorm overnight, and a cactus that overruns the campus library, she is forced to face the possibility that her origins are more mysterious than the fact that she was abandoned as a baby. Especially as a powerful urge takes hold of her to draw something new and frightening. With the help of a kind young policeman, she starts to piece together her connection to the phenomena around her, never imagining that her happiness and talent are key to the safety of an entire, invisible world.
