    Chapter One
    Jenna Addison looked up at the moon and felt uneasy. She was only six years old, but she knew things that other people didn't. She had not yet come into her full powers. She couldn't pinpoint exactly what would happen, but she knew how to read the signs—the leaves on the trees all turned upside down, and the red glowing ring around the moon.
    There were other things too. Most people would walk right past not even realizing any of it, but Jenna was different. Her entire family was different. Her sister Jamie was four and Jackie was two. Their parents wanted children close in age so they would feel close to each other as they grew . When her parents told her that, Jenna did not quite understand, but she knew she loved her sisters very much.
    Today was Jenna's sixth birthday, and she was expecting her grandmother to show up. She had to talk to her about the signs. Her grandmother would know what to do. She always knew what to do.
    When Grandma pulled into the drive, Jenna took off running. “Grandma Elena. I'm so glad you're here. I've been waiting for you.”
    Elena Hastings—a strong woman who never seemed to age— didn't look a day older than forty. But in fact she was sixty. “Hello, Dear. How is my big grown up granddaughter today on her birthday?” She scooped her up into a big bear hug.
    Jenna loved her grandmother dearly. “ Grandma, I need to talk to you. I saw some signs today.”
    “I know honey. I've seen them too. It's not good. You should prepare yourself for bad news.” She pulled her granddaughter in closer.
    “But Grandma, what is going to happen?” She knew that her grandmother knew more than she was telling.
    “I don't know sweetie, but it's something bad. I can't get a reading on it, which tells me that it's about me or somebody close to me.”
    Jenna could see the concern in her grandmother's eyes. All the signs told her something bad would happen that evening, but they didn't tell her what the bad thing would be. Jenna went to bed that night knowing things would be different in the morning.
    She heard her grandmother crying. It woke her in the middle of the night, and she ran downstairs , yelling, “Grandma, what is it? What's wrong?”
    Jenna stood there starring at her grandma. She saw her tears coming and felt her own building up inside. Something bad had happened to her parents. She could feel it. The look on her grandma's face told her everything she needed to know. Silence filled the air, and Jenna wanted to go back in time somehow. She didn't know what happened, but she knew it wasn't good.
    She stood there still as she could be as she listened to her grandmother explain to her that her parents were dead. It was a car crash. A drunk driver had ran a stop light and hit them head on. The police report said they died instantly. Jenna's whole body started to shake as she stood in her living room listening to her whole world crumble in front of her. Everything was about to change. People always say change if for the good, but did those people every loose both of their parents, she wondered.
    “ You girls are going to be just fine. I will take care of you.”
