From the outside, Josie and Macka are opposites.Josie is talkative, impulsive and awkward. She desperately wants to fit in at school, but the kids think ti's weired that she's always counting things. And constantly wiping things clean. And avoiding lifts and packed trains. The trips her dad makes her take into the city each week to see Psychbrain don't help much either.Macka is quiet, sharp-eyed and takes a while to trust people. A bit like the wedge-tailed eagles and other birds of prey he trains after school at the Wildlife Haven. It's the perfect job for Macka. It means he doesn't have to talk to anyone.When a series of incidents causes their lives to intertwine, Josie and Macka begin to discover as much about themselves as each other - and realise that making friends is really just a balancing act.
