Blamed by her parents for the tragic death of a friend, Clodagh has been banished from their town in the countryside to a dingy basement flat and a meaningless existence in the city. Then she meets the inhabitants of the top floor of 15 Russia Road. Charismatic Silver, brutal Jonny, paranoid Liv and exotic Wim range across a London of roofs, caves and ledges, unseen by the ordinary inhabitants, thrilliung in the freedom and danger. Clodagh, haunted for two years by the accident on the pylon, finds that running the roofs with these fascinating misfits brings her back to life, but it seems that tragedy and misfortune may not be done with her yet...
