"If you came here expecting happy rainbows, kittens, or magic fairies, you will be disappointed. In fact, if there are any kittens or magic fairies here today, they will probably end up in a microwave."

Sarah Williams is an ordinary girl. Or is she?

Is she a girl with an overactive imagination? A girl who has trapped herself in her own mind? Or is the narrator the one doing the trapping, conducting Sarah in her world of woe?

This is a fast physical extravaganza with guns, knives, and blood. Kittens will be harmed. You have been warned.
