English – Summary The story begins in a quiet, suburban neighbourhood of Detroit, where the Lipinski family live with their teenage son Robert, and his younger sister Sarah-Jane. Suddenly the family is dealt a huge blow when Robert's parents decide to split up. He is left devastated by his parents' divorce, and locks himself away in the attic, spending most of his free time there. His time at school is also rough. A gang of youths in Robert's class constantly tease him and beat him up. One of them is Martin McDermott, who will prove to be a thorn in Robert's side for many years to come. One day Robert encounters a magpie, after she flies in through the attic window and into Robert's life. He names the bird Gale. What Robert doesn't realise that Gale is no ordinary bird. The unlikely friendship grows between the teenager and the magpie, eventually leading them both down a path of crime and burglary that spans over a decade, and changes Robert's life forever.
