The witches and ghosts have a dangerous relationship, as witches have the ability to both steal time from ghosts, staying young seemingly forever, and to trap ghosts in glass and hold them prisoner, keeping them from moving on. Unwilling to simply steal that time from the living, Jenna earns every day she leeches with volunteer work at a suicide prevention hotline.

    Jenna whiles her time away in New York City, helping others when she can and waiting patiently for her dying day. But, in a strange twist it seems like the ghosts are more at threat from us than the reverse. It's amazing and terrifying, and I will continue to read everything she writes. By giving time they can make the living older and put off their true dying day off for decades or even centuries.

The main thing for Jenna is to join Patty, and she yearns to finally get enough time to make it there. Yet, this novella has some surprising and satisfying elements to it.
