In a city filled with wonders, one girl can do the most wonderful thing of all.

Georgie is special.

Not only is she the one person who can disappear at will, but since she found her parents, she's become The Richest Girl in the Universe. She may be special, but is she lucky? Her parents have forbidden her to vanish, her new school is full of snooty heiresses, she's had a growth spurt that makes her as graceful as a grizzly, and her best friend in the world, a belligerent boy named Bug, seems to have abandoned her.

But adventure is just around the corner, as a madman who calls himself The Chaos King has Georgie and Bug in his sights. In their efforts to save themselves from his insane plans, Georgie and Bug discover some of the amazing secrets of the city they love. Their journey will lead them to confront a pack of blasé vampires, a living lion of stone, a disgruntled teenage poet, a candy-loving sloth, The Second Richest Girl in the Universe, a fussy man named Mr. Fuss, and finally, the brink of the unimaginable. . . .

About the Author:

Laura Ruby lives in Chicago with her family. She spent much of her misguided youth writing angry, angsty poems and dyeing her hair lots of colors not found in nature. She is the author of Good Girls and Play Me as well as several other books for children and adults.

From AudioFile:

Rene Raudmans distinct voices make this sequel to THE WALL and THE WING a joyful listen. Raudman creates a full complement of unique voices for the range of characters--from timid Georgie, the only girl who can become invisible, to Bug, the boy who can fly. The story leads Georgie and Bug on the trail of vampires and crazy artists whose magic has gone amuck. Listeners will giggle at animal impersonations, including those of Noodle, the slightly supernatural cat, and Pinkwater, the incredibly verbal budgie. While the productions sound quality could be crisper, Raudmans varied and suspenseful delivery leaves nothing to be desired.
