N is for Nilam
Nilam is an Indian American girl who survived the great floods. She and her father escaped into a high rise as the waters washed away most of civilization as we know it. In the process of escaping the huge waves, her legs were injured and she can't walk. Her friend, Araceli made her the wheelchair she uses, but Nilam's father does not like nor trust Araceli. His wife died in the flood and he refuses to let his daughter be taken from him, especially a weirdo like Araceli. Nilam is a strong and patient girl, while her father laments their situation, Nilam tries to make the best of it, choosing to celebrate what they have than be sad about the past.
