By turns dark and shimmering, Moth is a fast, funny and heartbreaking story about two young people with nowhere to go.

Sebastian is “that kid” at high school. He’s weird. He smells. He’s obsessed with comics, and talks to himself. But after a catastrophic fallout with his only friend, Claryssa, he wakes up with a moth in a jar by his bed, and a calling to save the souls of all humanity. And so begins the Passion of Sebastian: a journey into a terrifying and starless night.
