Kite Morgan’s in sixth grade when she has her first fight. It’s with a girl named Carla Bell, and Kite loses. She comes home and creates a paper doll resembling Carla and, in a fit of fury, runs the doll over with her little brother’s Tonka truck.
Outside, sirens wail as emergency vehicles race past Kite’s house.
Kite figures this can’t be good. Especially when she finds the real Carla Bell a half mile up the road, lying beneath the wheels of a real truck, looking exactly like the doll had on her dining room table. Comatose, Carla is taken to hospital.
Kite thinks it’s more than a mere coincidence. Soon her theories are validated, launching her on an emotional rocket ship ride as she fully realizes the implications of possessing so much power and the responsibility that goes along with it.
Kite finds out the hard way, though, responsibility isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
