Two college-age girls- Browyn, an anarchist, and Elaine, a go-getter- meet at a support group for those that have lost parents. Both of their fathers passed in different ways, but they strike up an abrasive yet charismatic friendship through their grief, anger and quirks. They both try to make sense of life after death, trying to become new people despite missing a vital piece of what made them alive in the first place. In this they learn what they're really hiding from- a truth that they cannot defeat and an acknowledgement that faith is more of a struggle than a feeling. Half memoir, half fiction, The face of a Monster is an examination of friendship, family and the curse of memory.
