Dad’s new family means there’s no room left for Birdy. The only place that feels like home is Grandpa’s pigeon loft, amongst the warmth of the birds she loves to race. It’s also where she meets Dogger, her only real friend. When Birdy uncovers a message from the past, she thinks it explains why she doesn’t ‘fit’ with her family. But the closer she gets to the truth, the further apart she becomes from Dogger. Why is he drifting away when she needs him the most?
Sometimes it’s those we know best who might be hiding the biggest secrets…
