When he started at the new school, he was called Freddie, but it wasn't really his name. He lived somewhere near the Park, but he didn't want any of his school friends to know exactly where. His mum and dad never visited the school, and he could never go out anywhere with them, or allow any of his friends to meet them. It was all a great mystery. His friend, Rorey, was determined to find out exactly what was going on, so one day he followed Freddie home, and discovered why everything about his home, his mum and dad, and even his age, had to be kept secret.
