Thirteen-year-old Glory Eleanor Loomis of Sackatucket, Long Island makes a shocking discovery in a secondhand bookstore when she picks up a book that reads like a horror story version of her own life. Things take an even weirder and more worrisome turn when she’s suddenly beset by a flurry of eerie flu-like symptoms, collapses onto her bedroom floor, and awakens twelve hours later, bewildered and terrified, in a hospital bathroom. Unaware that she is caught in the grip of biological forces that no one sees or understands, she begins to change in secret, subtle, and stupefying ways until her transformation is complete. Be careful what you wish for, someone once said . . . but in the end, Glory could not have wished for more.
Michael Bassen is a former high school English teacher who has written several stories and plays, created a number of educational games, and composed many songs. He lives in Lincoln, Rhode Island.
