Gal and Deirdre have forgotten something.  something really, really important.

When her grandmother dies, Deirdre is left alone in a crumbling block of flats. Looking out the window one misty night, she sees a boy who seems familiar.  Together, he and Deirdre must discover the secret of the old building, before it collapses and the secret is lost forever . . .

A beguilingly beautiful book about what it means to love.
