Description - Came Back To Show You I Could Fly by Robin Klein

Seymour is bored and lonely, and running from a gang of kids when he opens a back-lane gate. And there is Angie. She is older than Seymour, confident, cool and alluring, and she treats him with the affection of an older sister. Seymour is captivated - through Angie he is awakened to the fun and adventure in life. But Angie has a dark side - a secret that threatens to destroy her. And as Seymour begins to understand that all is not well he knows he has to help her. Came Back to Show You I Could Fly is a heartwarming account of an unlikely friendship that shows a very human side of drug addiction.
