The midnighters are five teenagers living in Bixby, Oklahoma who have the privelage, and sometimes punishment, of getting to live an extra hour each day, that happens at the strike of midnight. With this extra hour comes special powers, such as mind reading and flying. But the midnight hour is not all fun and games. Evil creatures, known as Darklings, can only survive in the secret hour. To these teenagers, the Darklings can be deadly.
In the second installment in this trilogy, the reasons for an entire generation of midinghters going missing comes to light. Something that suprises the teens even more, is some of the missing midnighters are not even dead and they know secrets too horrible to share.
Throughout the novel, one of the characters, Rex, goes missing and there is reason to believe he will be used by the darklings in a fate worse than death. His best friend, Melissa, would do anything to save him, even going as far as to break the trust of one of their other friends. By breaking this trust, she puts other people's lives in danger.
1.) If you could have special powers, but they also came with the dangers of monsters constantly trying to kill you, would you still want the powers. Explain.
2.) Melissa was only trying to save Rex's life when she broke the trust of her other friend. Would you be willing to put someone's life at risk if it was to save someone close to you? Explain.
