Olivia Kidney by Ellen Potter

Olivia Kidney's new apartment building is crazy! Multi-coloured talking lizards crawling everywhere. A tropical rainforest growing in 7B. Even an apartment made entirely of glass! Maybe her father will get fired from his job as caretaker of the building, and they can leave. But Olivia is tired of moving from place to place, from school to school. And she's really lonely, especially now that it's just her and her dad. But now Olivia seems to have found a friend to share things with - and a place where she feels right at home, even if it is a very strange place indeed...

A great place to go to find your next literary escape, and where you don't have to judge a book by its cover!
