Sarah is a tall awkward girl, very slow and dreamy who a an amazing rapport with animals. Because she is different, she gets teased by her classmates. The teasing becomes taunting and the taunting becomes aggressive bullying.

Because he's different he gets teased too but he's befriended by Tim who tries to protect him. When Mark's glove puppet vanishes, Mark doesn't come to school. Tim tracks both down and discovers just how and why Mark came to be so different.
