James Posted April 30, 2010 Report Share Posted April 30, 2010 Hey guys! I'm trying to find out the name of a story I read a while back. I don't remember the names of the characters or anything (or even where I read it...) What I do remember is that the main character (if not the narrator) is an orphan (or separated from his parents) and he lives in an apartment, in a storage closet that he's fixed up. The tenants all sort of look the other way for years so that he can do so. Other important characters are an old man who runs some kind of restaurant, and he gives food to this kid regularly and talks to him (doesn't know about the situation though). The character also goes to "school," or so he tells the old man, by which he means he goes to some woman's house and reads the books she owns. I think the character actually moves in with someone later, adopted or something, and a big issue in the story is that he wants to keep in regular contact with some kids he babysat a lot in that apartment. Any of this sound familiar? Heh. Quote Link to comment
