Daisy thought about the long corridor full of portals and the hatchway that was like a deep, dark well. “No,” she said. “I’m sure the hammerhead shiver will protect us.” Jesse nodded.

coolest and most complicated one he had ever done. He grinned at Bill, who grinned back. Daisy grabbed his arm and hauled him back toward Polly’s house. “Wait!” said Mitzi. Daisy rolled her eyes. Jesse was all too happy to spend more time with these people. They both turned around. “Take these,” Mitzi said. “What are they?” Daisy asked. “A little piece of the beach,” Mitzi said with a smile.
