She was seventeenth years old and going to her last time to summer camp before responsibilities came in like college, a job, and adulthood.. It was an ordinary summer, and she an ordinary girl. But things began to change that summer.

The voices would slow down, as she was on her medication, and as she would recover. but then the voices would come back stronger as ever. Making Lori attempt suicide once again, and going back to the hospital. which became difficult for her parents, family, and even the hospital staff.
