Meet Finnegan MacManus, or just “Finn” as he prefers to be called. His life began when he was 18 years old. He was born 18 years earlier, but he had never truly lived. Since birth he had been different and his parents were indifferent toward him. His mother never bonded with her infant son. He never cried or smiled. As he got older he would scream and throw his arms around when something did not go his way.
