When Emily, a sensitive synesthete from Claremore, Oklahoma, witnesses a heart-wrenching act of domestic violence that orphans her and her older sister, Emily is haunted by the loss of her kindred sprit. She turns to music for comfort, and keeps secret the fact that she has the ability to see other people's auras and sense their true natures. For Emily, a kaleidoscope of color lofts above everyone she meets. She is instinctively drawn to rare, nurturing Purples like her mother and avoids the cruel Grays like her father, the Monster. Without her mother's guidance, Emily must learn to trust her instincts and draw her boundaries on her own as she navigates through a newly found career in the music business.
