I really enjoyed this young adult novel. The story of Emmy & Oliver who have lived next door to each other for seven years. They have shared adventures, birthdays, friendship; friends for life. Until the day Oliver is kidnapped by his estranged father. For ten years Oliver's whereabouts and welfare are unknown.
When he turns 17, Oliver returns to live next door to Emmy. He finds it very strange. He blames his mother, he feels he doesn't fit in at school. Gradually Emmy wins him over and they start to build on the relationship they had as children.
