But Thomas Neary and his Pop move in upstairs. Thomas writes about his life in his journal - about his father, who spends each night at the tavern down the street, the mother he wishes he had, and the Mallon family downstairs that he desperately wants to be a part of. Thomas has a secret that only Bird suspects, and turns out to be the best friend Bird could ever have.
