Turtle wore a weird sort of metal plate on her back. Stuck to it like an aluminum hairball were old pots and pans, pieces of scrap metal, and what looked like a bacon press. There were also knives. A lot of them.

“Don’t ya remember tellin’ me ‘bout how a turtle’s home protects ‘em from bad stuff ?”

Before I realized what was happening, a knife slammed blade-first into the wall behind me.

“I figure ya unnerstand now,” she said. “Or do I gotta ‘splain more?”


The younger sister of Gadget and Books, Turtle is arguably smarter than both boys combined. She ran away from the mall when the teens took Gadget, swearing vengeance against them for their crime.

But when joining the Crows turns out to be a lot more than she had bargained for, Turtle thinks maybe her big brothers have a few things to teach her, after all.
