Olivia Kidney's new apartment building is crazy! Talking lizards crawling everywhere. An exiled princess haunting the hallways. A tropical rainforest growing in 7B. Even an apartment made entirely of glass!
Maybe her father will get fired from his job as the building super, as he always does, and they can leave. But Olivia is tired of moving from place to place, from school to school. What she wouldn't give for a little slice of sanity. And maybe a friend to share it with.
In the tradition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland comes a remarkable debut novel that is quirky, magical, and completely genuine. Ellen Potter offers us a world where even the oddest of characters feel right at home. Come in for a visit: you'll never want to leave.
"Characters and events, real and imaginary, intertwine at a dizzying pace. With a clear voice and steady pace, Tara Sands...narrates Olivia as the young lady she is, with all the squeals, awe, and disbelief of a young person, while also providing distinguishing vocal traits for the supporting cast." (AudioFile)
"Potter...has a delightful way with words." (Booklist)
"Potter has written a first-rate novel to be enjoyed on many levels. Its plot is so tightly woven that it's difficult to separate the mystical from the fantastical...An imaginative, original offering with a poignant and satisfying ending that may bring a tear or two." (School Library Journal)
