Olivia Kidney has just moved to another new apartment building, and Olivia?s the new kid in school, again. Olivia thinks she?s fed up with new places . . . until she gets a look at her building! Sure, it looks normal from the outside, but inside things are crazy. There are talking lizards crawling everywhere. An exiled princess haunts the hallways, and Olivia finds one apartment made entirely of glass! She?s meeting fantastical characters and seeing wondrous sights that make Alice?s Adventures in Wonderland seem tame. But among all the ghosts and pirates and princesses, can Olivia find a friend?
Baker & Taylor
Twelve-year-old Olivia explores her new apartment building and finds a psychic, talking lizards, a shrunken ex-pirate, an exiled princess, ghosts, and other unusual characters.
Although sick and tired of living in her latest apartment building where her father works as a building-super, Olivia Kidney doesn’t necessarily want to move again because she has already moved so much in her young life and so simply wishes to finally be somewhere where she can settle in like everybody else.
