Glory doesn't have much to be cheerful about--she lives in a big, shabby house inhabited mostly by old people, and has a birthmark that has earned her the nickname Clot Face. What she needs is a friend, and when the carnival comes to town and she meets Marvalene, it seems she may have found one. Marvalene's tired of the unsettled existence of a "carnie," and she thinks that if she can convince Glory she's psychic by seeming to read her mind, maybe she'll be invited into Glory's life. But faking psychic powers isn't so easy, and when Marvalene pries too far into the mystery of Glory's mother, it looks as though the friendship may be doomed.
