Meg’s best friend Oscar is said to have drowned. But his younger brother Stevie doesn’t believe in this. Every day he leaves short notes at the place where Oscar’s bike was found in the water. Oscar was very popular and in each emergency situation he would offer a piece of his wonderful apple tart. Everybody was consoled simply because of its smell. Since Meg’s stay in New Zealand, things have changed though.
Why was Oscar suddenly bullied and what has Paloma do with it? Paloma is the new classmate whose family rented the house during Meg’s absence. And what about the letter to Oscar she hid under the mattress before leaving? It was found by Paloma and handed to Oscar! Meg suddenly becomes aware that Oscar and she were betrayed. But can she turn back time, and might Oscar be still alive? Only a miracle can help!
