A book which combines artistic value with an important social message.

Some houses have secrets. And they will do everything to keep them secret.

In her latest book, Małgorzata Strękowska-Zaremba touches upon subjectsthat are difficult to speak about, yet also hard to stay quiet about.

When Daniel meets Mary, a strange girl with eyes like two shining mirrors, he is able to tell straight away that it’s the beginning of an amazing story. His new friend hides in the bushes and watches a house on the other side of the street – something that seemingly looks like an ordinary, even boring, game. Except she’s dead serious about it. What’s more, she’s petrified. When Daniel begins to take a closer look at whatever has scared her so much,
he discovers things that are hard to understand, or even ominous, in a house that, on the face of it, looks ordinary. He feels intrigued and decides to help Mary solve the mystery.

But will the house out of this world let Daniel and Mary tear the secret away from it?
