The Boy on the Roof
By: Kerry Kadel
About the Book
When Maizie moves to New York to live with her father, she finds her idea of fun to be unpopular and is quickly labeled as closed-minded and a so-called “stick-in-the-mud.” When she meets the positive and animated Max Parker on the roof of her apartment, his erratic personality clashes with her inner cynic, sparking curiosity for an unlikely friendship.
With a mixture of caution and risk, Maizie and Max’s relationship is a slow-moving friendship. As new experiences and people enter their lives, Maizie is able to lean on her new friend and family to recognize change can be made for the better.
