Bethany, a beautiful and popular teen hangs herself the night before Halloween. Her devoted sister follows her into a frozen death, and a city where trees bleed along the banks of a river of blood. Meanwhile, Addy is visiting from Montreal, determined that Natalie's mother will give birth to her baby while she is there.
Consider a baby born in a snowstorm, one girl who never sleeps and another who craves blood, ghostly footprints and dangling corpses, New Year's fireworks and an unexpected kiss, all tied to a legendary queen who lives in the hidden center of Suicide City.
