Imagine there is someone you like so much that just thinking about them leaves you desperate and reckless. You crave them in a way that's not rational, not right, and you're becoming somebody you don't recognise, and certainly don't respect, but you don't even care.
And this person you like is unattainable. Except for one thing . . .
He lives downstairs.
Abbie has three obsessions. Art. The ocean. And Kane.
But since Kane's been back, he's changed. There's a darkness shadowing him that only Abbie can see. And it wants her in its world.
A gothic story about the very dark things that feed the creative process.
From the winner of the 2010 Victorian Premier's Literary Award for young adult fiction.

'There are images in this novel that take my breath away, dialogue that I envy and one of the most achingly real protagonists I've come across for a long while.' - Melina Marchetta
