269 Days

A boy is missing his dearest friend, the neighbour girl who he used to play with every day and who he may, unknowingly, have a bit of a crush on. She moved away a year ago, and since then it has rained for 269 days. But she sends him chocolates and mysterious messages that remind him of something they used to share. But one day a new girl moves into the neighbour house. This is a picture book about how painful yet good it can be to miss someone.
