Hallie Meredith is angry at God and feeling sorry for herself. Her beloved father died in a car accident, and her whole life has turned upside down. Her mother has had to find a job, and they’ve moved to a cramped apartment in an old mansion, away from Hallie’s old friends and her school.
Looking for somewhere – anywhere – to hide from her lousy life, Hallie discovers the old mansion’s mysterious attic, and a secret window where she can spy straight into another family’s life. At first it’s a game, sneaking up to the attic, forgetting her own troubles for a while as she watches the strange doings of this oddly dysfunctional family. But as the mystery of what is going on on the other side of the window deepens, Hallie becomes increasingly involved in the intimate lives of people she really doesn’t know, and the game turns into a kind of addiction. When she sees signs of danger, Hallie tries to help, and that may be the best way she can help herself as well.
