Fifteen-year-old Prisma Loughton’s abusive father and absentee mother make her home life a living hell and with no friends to speak of, she’s been dubbed “Prisma the Loner” at school. Prisma has a secret; a special skill that she calls retracting. Prisma can escape the physical world and exist in the fantasy world she made up in her mind, a world where she feels safe and nothing can hurt her -- through a process called retracting. She even made a “dream boy” version of her high school crush, Patrick Wilde, that she can unabashedly pour her sorrows into. It's all fun and games until Prisma is forced to choose between her true life and her make-believe dream world.
