She had moved to the hilltown after the death of her mother, and in the lonely girl's face Angie recognizes a mirror image of her own haunting mask. ^^Angie's attempt to intervene in Melissa's life draws her into conflict with the girl's father. Gradually the relationship softens into a sense of involvement and even affection.
