14-year-old Aiden Desmond is used to knowing things others don't. He knows about things from books his friends don’t read, things on tests in higher grades, things that happen that adults don’t talk about, and about bad days on a person's personal calendar, days when things happened, that divided their life into "Before" and "After."
