Will is the youngest of them, and he follows the steps of his sister by being his mother's pet.
Yes, mother. I will always do as you say.
Violet is the main character; she is the rebel, always against her mother.
Why can't anyone see it?!
SHE is the one who is torturing us!
Rose is the oldest daughter; she escaped one year ago after being the pet of her mother.
And Josephine is their horrible mother, that had given birth to them more for herself.
My life is perfect!
Living with my boyfriend is better.
I am a "recovering" alcoholic.
One night, Violet gets in a fight with her mother and hurts Will. She also thinks she saw Rose by the window. She is then sent to an asylum, but she doesn't remember hurting her brother.
Rose! There's Rose!
Rose starts writing letter to her sister, and Violet decides to find more information about the boyfriend with who she escaped; she calls Roses's last boyfriend and her best friend, who say they don't have any contact with her.
"I can't tell you where I'm living, or who is my boyfriend, or any information that would make you less worried about me."
Will and his father Douglas try to find information about Rose and discover that she hasn't opened her mailbox since she disappeared. Will also finds her pregnancy journal.
Rose had had a baby? And Mom forced her into abortion?!
Child Services come to Will to get more information on how Will was hurt; they also contact Violet and help her get to Rose.
We don't have anything to hide!
In her last letter, Rose offers Violet to come and meet her at a cafe to live with her; Josephine stops Violet and hurts her. She then explains everything.
You are not my daughter! You will stay in the asylum!
Rose had committed suicide, and Josephine got angry when she discovered it. She had then buried Rose in their garden.
No! I want people to think you are perfect!
She had also faked Rose being caught by the cameras by taking her personal objects and hiding them; she had also created a fake bank account at Rose's name to set the police off track.
