When Jessica Day moves to Bixby, Oklahoma her life changes dramatically. She finds out there is a 25th hour that everybody is frozen in except for people who were born at the stroke of midnight and creatures of the dark. For some reason the secret hour only happens in Bixby. She finds other "midnighters". Everyone of them, Rex, Melissa, Dess and Jonathan have a gift. All except for Jessica. Rex can see things that have been touched by the creatures of the dark (the darklings. Melissa can hear other peoples thoughts. Dess is a math genuis. Jonathan can fly but only in the secret hour. All of these gifts help them fight the darklings, but what is Jessicas's gift. She is defenseless except for the thirteen letter words Dess gives her and the new metal that darklings are afraid of. Things are even worse because the darlkings seem to have gotten even more active when she came and they keep on trying to attack her. Jessica must learn her gift quickly or she might even die.

I loved this book. It had such a great plot and the details were great. There was also a lot of action.
