The Other Ones by RL Mosz
You don't want to become one.
Renowned physicist Damon Devereaux married a miscreant, and it nearly cost him his life.
High school student Lilianna Annesley struggles to survive an upbringing with reprobate parents.

Just when it seems that all hope is extinguished, one truth emerges from the embers:
