Brief Synopsis

After their father dies, Milly and Louis move to a new neighborhood with their mother. Milly becomes friends with Eric, the boy who lives next door. Eric is autistic and seems obsessed with flight, often climbing up to the roof and holding his arms out as if to fly. Before long, Milly comes to believe that Eric might actually possess an ability that no one else knows about.
