When Louis’s family moves from the city to a small coastal town, he finds himself at odds with everything around him. He’s an outsider at his new school where he’s at the mercy of the two school bullies, and he misses the city and his friends. The only person Louis can talk to is the ‘windmill man’, Mr Chatters.

Then Mr Chatters’ niece Tilly arrives in town and, unexpectedly, Louis discovers he has much in common with her. But are the rumours about Tilly true? Instead of relying on his own judgement, Louis listens to the circulating gossip and the friendship he’s come to rely on is pushed to breaking point…

From bestselling author Garry Disher comes a story of fitting in, making friends, and finding out who you really are.
