In 1960s Toronto, two girls retreat to their attics to escape the loneliness and isolation of their lives. Polly lives in a house bursting at the seams with people, while Rose is often left alone by her busy parents - both girls seek solace in books and the cosy confines of their respective attics. But soon they discover they aren't alone - they're actually neighbours, sharing a wall. They develop an unlikely friendship, and Polly is ecstatic to learn that Rose can actually see and talk to ghosts. But is there more to Rose than there seems?

so lovable and exiting but with a dark twist that makes it one of the most memorable books i have ever read

A well written & charming story of two girls in 1960s Toronto. Two very different girls, Rose & Polly, are newly neighbours. They bond over their common loneliness and interest in the paranormal. Add a conveniently placed graveyard across the street, and the adventure begins!

One haunted house, two girls. One secret hideaway, two creepy attics. Many ghosts. = a story for those with interests in the paranormal.
