      Mother made all of us in her image...

      Jars is about a wonderful new procedure that makes pesky children perfect. Marianne Marticken is a sad, sad girl who grows up to be a happy, happy human woman by using said procedure. As she celebrates an important milestone in her very, very successful real estate career, some things start leaking through the cracks and startling her coworker. Determined to fix everything, Marianne must soon face her greatest fear. Jars is also about mother-daughter relationships and fairytales and home decor and also storybook blood zombies.
