Abby | 4 comments Things I remember-
This is probably a young adult book. I read it while in high school or before 2004.
A teen girl gets a job working as a housekeeper. She works in a mansion I think with two? other women. She takes a bus to this house daily and stops off in the diner next door. She meets a boy there and likes him. He gives her a coke when she comes in.
She ends up meeting the person she's working for and he's about her age. She falls for him. He's an artist and enters a picture of some type of bird in an art contest. This bird lives outside his house. He ends up being sick and ultimately passing away. I want to say the name Gabe or Gabriel is important but it's been a long long time.
