This is a quirky piece that makes one wonder is the world just a series of electronic impulses or do humans have something else? Sunny was born hairless but raised to believe she was destined for great things. Maxon was born an Asperger savant to an illiterate family in rural Pennsylvania. The two meet as children and despite warnings to the contrary marry and have an autistic son.

Maxon is on his way to the moon to colonize it with his robots. Again pregnant, Sunny is left to tend to their child and decide what to do about her comatose mother. An accident forces Sunny to look beyond the day-to-day routines that she has established to create normalcy and in doing so begins to realize most of us hide behind something so that we can be called normal.
