Publisher Description

‘The pick of the bunch is Eleanor Nilsson’s evocative, spine-tingling novel about loyalty, friendship and communication across the barriers of death...’


The Sun-Herald





When Gunno breaks into the quiet house with the big garden, he has no idea how it will change his life. Something about the place keeps drawing him back: its daytime silence, its solitude, and the mysterious upstairs bedroom that belongs—or belonged—to a boy very much like Gunno.





As he unravels the mysteries of the house and the family that seems to half-live there, Gunno becomes less certain of his own place in the world—until his destiny is revealed in a chilling and transcendent conclusion.





This award-winning, genre-defying ghost story is a classic of Australian young adult literature.
