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.
Emma Cameron lives on the South Coast of NSW. While raising two children, she works in school libraries where she enjoys being surrounded by books and children. In 2005 she rekindled her interest with writing stories and has completed Certificates in Creative Writing, Short Story Writing, Writing for Children and Editing. Her writing skills have been recognised in writing competitions for both short stories and novels, and her first publication was in anthologies, school resource kits and magazines. Emma enjoys interacting with others who have stories to tell and enjoys the opportunity to help others explore ways to improve their own writing skills. Cinnamon Rain was her first novel.
Clever and beautifully constructed, this moving, character driven story has many layers and themes. Emma Cameron is a gifted writer whose first verse novel Cinnamon Rain was an outstanding debut. This is equally as good and will also remain unforgettable.
A lovely warm story of friendship, neighbours and caring.
