About[]

John Keene is Natalie Keene’s older brother, who is a senior in high school. An emotional teenage boy, John Keene is soon singled out as a suspect in Natalie’s murder, and becomes something of a pariah throughout Wind Gap. As rumors that John and Natalie were close in an “unhealthy” way and it is revealed that John has no alibi for the night of Natalie’s murder, pressure mounts, and John becomes even more emotional and withdrawn. As Camille’s suspicions about Adora intensify, she seeks solace at a bar on the outskirts of town, and when she finds a drunken John Keene there, he begs her to believe that he had nothing to do with Natalie’s murder. The two then go to a motel and sleep together; John Keene is the first man to ever see Camille’s scars, but he does not recoil at the sight of them and instead allows Camille to feel seen, accepted, and even “exorcised.”
