View from the 32nd Floor

By Emma Cameron

Can two youngsters unite their fellow tenants in the biggest get-together ever?

Something special has been gifted to you. Join your neighbours, Saturday, 6.00 pm, on the roof. Living on the thirty-second floor of an apartment block, William has a clear view of the building opposite. He sees his neighbours eating ice-cream, watering potted palms, painting pictures … or as shadows behind closed curtains. Shadows worry William. With his new friend Rebecca, and helped by lots of cake, a dictionary of names, tai chi, and banana-shaped sticky notes, he plans to tempt his lonely neighbours back into the world. Can they succeed? Always always.

  • From the author of Cinnamon Rain, a YA verse novel.
  • “Full of warmth and optimism … Highly recommended.” Reading Time
