Westerfeld, Scott. 2004. Midnighters: Secret Hour
Strange things happen at midnight in the town of Bixby, Oklahoma. Time freezes. Nobody moves. For one secret hour each night, the town belongs to the dark creatures that haunt the shadows.
Meet the Midnighters, the teens who happen to have been born exactly between 12:00 and 12:01 AM. For they have the power to witness and act in the twenty-fifth hour of each day.
Jessica Day is new to Bixby. New to the twenty-fifth hour dimension of sorts. But she’ll have to learn quickly if she wants to survive because the dark shadow creatures fear her more than any of the other humans--and she doesn’t know why. It’s a race to discover the power and mystery of her hidden talents. With the help of the other Midnighters, her adventures begin.
