Strange messages print when no one is around, when no data has been sent to the print queue, and even when the machine is unplugged. The worst part for twelve-year- old Brian is the predictions are coming true and life is becoming scary. Each time Brian tells a lie, makes fun of someone, or does something he shouldn't--the messages appear.
Brian gets help from his friend, Jason, to tackle the printer problems. But when the boys meet Angela Daniels, their situation becomes much more urgent. Since Angela has also been in contact with the printer, it is now causing more danger than they could have imagined. The trio must solve the mystery, and they don't have time to waste.
