"No one looks too closely at a librarian. People are afraid of going blind from the glare of ssss-ssso much compressed wisdom."
"Innocence ain't all it's cracked up to be, you know. Innocent little kids rip the wings off flies, because they don't know any better. That's innocence."
SummaryAdd a Summary
Vic McQueen is an average girl with a seriously abnormal ability -- when she rides her bike, she can open a bridge through space to find lost objects. When Vic tries to use her gift to find "trouble," she comes face to face with the equally gifted, and utterly evil, Charles Manx. Charles Manx uses his car like Vic uses her bike, but instead of finding lost things, he spirits children away into Christmasland, where they never grow old, never feel sorrow, and lose their humanity to become sociapathic monsters. Vic escapes Charles Manx, only to have her life scarred by the echo of Christmasland. When Charles Manx returns to target Vic's son, she has to pit her magic and courage against Manx's for the stake of her son's soul.
