The book explains many of the characters as being "Goth" in dark clothing and wearing shaded glasses, even while inside buildings. The current generation of midnighters is considered orphaned.
There used to be a larger group of them who were destroyed several decades ago by the Grayfoots. Rex has the ability to read about this history in the lore, a book of notes made by previous midnighters. The orphaned group knows of only one ancient midnighter, Madeleine, a mindcaster who shares the history of midnighters with Melissa who also has the ability to mindcast.
Jessica is the newest midnighter to the group and has the flame bringing ability. It is implied that this power is what the darklings are after and that the events of Samhain are plotted specifically to destroy the flame bringer. The five orphaned midnighters are friendly but not the best of friends.
They do not always work well together and there is quite a bit of personal conflict between them. The third part of the trilogy, Blue Noon tells the story of what happens when time freezes in the middle of the day during a school pep rally.
The book is all about the task of trying to keep the secret time in the secret hour. The midnighters begin to experience the secret hour more and more frequently during daylight hours.

They learn of a rip in the blue time that is sucking up daylighters. This rip expands like the seam in fabric. The next night, it happens again.

It, along with other slithers and a darkling in the form of a large cat, attacks her. Jessica is rescued by the "Midnighters": Dess , Rex and Melissa , who chase away the animals using thirteen letter words and steel.
The next day, they explain that in Bixby time freezes for an hour every midnight and that only Midnighters - people born at the moment of midnight - can enter it.
Creatures known as darklings live in this secret hour where they can hide from advances in human technology. Darklings hate people and fear new inventions, complex concepts and the number It was the darklings who took one hour of each hour-day and hid inside it so that people couldn't get to them. They also explain that each Midnighter has a special power - Dess is a polymath, Rex is a Seer someone who can read the lore - the ancient history of the midnighters and Melissa is a mindcaster meaning she has a variety of telepathic abilities.
They don't know what Jessica's power is, except that it isn't the same as any of theirs. The next midnight, Jonathan , a boy from Jessica's school, arrives outside her house, and takes her flying with him - he is an Acrobat, and in the Secret Hour gravity does not have a strong hold on him.
He and Rex don't get along, and the other Midnighters avoid talking about him.She seemed to exist just out of the reach of focus, like music played from a copy of a copy of an old cassette tape.
