Blamed by her parents for the tragic death of a friend, Clodagh has been banished from their home in the countryside to a dingy basement flat in the city. Her life is transformed when she meets the inhabitants on the top floor of 15 Russia Road. An exotic range of young people who explore a London of roofs, eaves and ledges, thrilling in the freedom and danger. Clodagh, haunted still by the accident, finds that running the roofs brings her back to life, but it seems that tragedy and misfortune may not be done with her yet.

This is a strange story about a bunch of misfits who spend their time walking across the roofs of tall buildings in London. There is also a couple of foster parents who abduct their foster child because they are asked to give him up, because he is half Asian and the Children's Aid wants to place him with a bi racial family. It was a bit boring at times but on the whole a good read.
