Carver Middle School isn't normal. There is a dark force at work that comes out when the children play. The games are never fun. They're serious. And they're for keeps.
The kids at Carver know the rules: You don't tell. You don't skip out. Everybody plays and the game never ends. Those are the rules and you'd better learn fast, because if you don't then it will hurt you, hurt you, hurt you.
