Ada was born with one foot on the other side. Prayed into existence by those who believe they are her parents, Saul and Saachi struggle to deal with the volatile and contradictory spirits peopling their troubled girl. When Ada comes of age and heads to college, the group of selves within her grows in power and agency. As Ada fades into the background of her own mind and these selves - now protective, now hedonistic - seize control and her life spirals in a dark and dangerous direction. Freshwater explores the metaphysics of identity and mental health.
