Ten-year-old Anna Glowntin is an odd girl… but not even she can figure out why. She feels sick whenever she eats. She barely ever sleeps. And she’s the exact same as she was at eight years old. When new-girl Jennifer moves to town, she reveals a secret that unlocks whole new world to Anna- the world she belongs in. But even amongst the strange people whom call themselves Stoppers, Anna is alone. Not only is she unlike any other Stopper before her, she is also slowly being taken over by a threatening darkness. What is the darkness? Why is Anna such a mystery? And can she even trust Jennifer, the girl who dragged her headfirst into this mess?
