Pinkie is an unusual 10 year old. She is being used by a foundation which is getting rich because she can tap harmonic energies and help people relieve pain in their lives. Sixteen year old Barry Evans invokes a migraine headache to gain entrance to the foundation. Once there, his plan is to rescue Pinkie from the heavily guarded estate and take her to her grandfather. Guard dogs, barbed wire fences, a stormy night and an old rickety bike all work against Barry's plan. Read "Healer" to find out how Barry thinks through this mess that Pinkie has gotten herself into.
