When Vera receives a scholarship to an elite tech school, she thinks the hardest part will be making friends. Turns out there are darker things at Morton Tech. Evil things worse than bullies. Like demons.
After a face-stealing demon only Vera can see appears, she realizes she’s the only one who can stop it. She’s going to have to use all her wits, and the confidence she’s gained from living with a facial difference and Osteogenesis Imperfecta (“Brittle Bone Disease”), to save her friends.
Will she find the strength to face her own fears and learn what it means to be a hero? Or will the demon escape the school and wreak havoc on the world?
Join Vera Warden on her adventures as she confronts demons, ghosts, mean teachers, and maybe even a few bullies.
