He knows all about living alone. Knows all about life on the top floor, on the other side of the locks that keep him there. It’s not a bad life. Lots of other kids have it worse, and he has everything he wants. Except for paper and pencils.
He did a terrible thing once, with nothing more than a drawing and dislike, to someone who will never be right again.
When Roni moves in next door for the summer, singing enigmatic songs in the window across from him, it’s the beginning of a new adventure: friendship, and a secret line to the world outside.
Summer always ends, though, and guests have to go home. But friendship means forever.
No matter what the cost to life and limb.
