She blisters after just moments in the sun, communicates with her dog, and has correctly predicted the weather every day for more than two years. But that's not so weird, right?

Then one day, Fern closes her eyes and opens them seconds later to find herself on a sandy beach, miles away from school. And when she disappears again--this time to someplace far more dangerous--Fern begins to realize just how different she is.

With the help of her twin brother, Sam, Fern struggles to gain control over what's happening to her. Yet the arrival of a sinister stranger--a vampire--soon leads her to question her very identity. Before she knows it, Fern finds herself in the middle of a centuries-old battle--one that puts more than just her own life in danger.
