Fourteen-year-old Eddie Innocent hopes to one day become an award-winning newspaper journalist. Now he has won a chance to write for the Junior Herald. The only problem is the newspaper's 16-year-old hard-nosed editor, Jessica Lamps, who wants Eddie to stick to 'the three Ps of kids' journalism: puzzles, pets and prizes.
But Eddie has an uncanny ability to find the most bizarre supernatural stories unfolding in his city. Enter Destiny, a girl with a transplanted right hand that has a mind of its own and is making her steal things ... or so she says.
Eddie and his sidekick, the funny but brilliant Noah, find themselves drawn into the mystery. What does the hand want with its bizarre collection? And can Eddie get to the bottom of this story without losing his job, and being drawn into his own darkness?
