Review:
In a sequel to Ellen Potter's delightful Olivia Kidney, 12-year-old Olivia and her handyman father George report for duty ("a live-in situation") at 917 West 84th Street in New York City, a curious brownstone with a flooded first floor -- a lagoon complete with boats, floating furniture, and snapping turtles. The handsome young owner, Ansel Plover, seems quite charming, but a neighbor warns Olivia that the man is "mad, bad, and dangerous." Her worst fears are confirmed when a redheaded man she sees yelling at Ansel one night dies a mysterious death in Central Park. Worse still, her father is almost poisoned by a pie. Is their new landlord a killer? The perpetual new kid on the block, Olivia doesn't have many friends to console her, but she does have a special way of communicating with her dead brother Christopher. Can he somehow, even from the spirit world, help her unravel the mystery on 84th Street? Peter H. Reynold's cartoonish black-and-white illustrations contribute a modern sensibility to this engaging, deliciously imaginative novel where, as Olivia learns, it's best not to jump to conclusions. (Ages 9 to 12) --Karin Snelson
From the Inside Flap:
If you thought Olivia Kidney's last apartment building was weird, wait until you see her new home! A lagoon in the living room. A room in which a person's every thought can be heard. Strangers showing up at all hours of the night to practice bumping into walls! And, of course, there are the ghosts. Why do they always seem to follow Olivia around? And why was Olivia invited to live at this strange place? Everything eventually falls into place when she meets a young woman in a coma, and Olivia realizes she has just as much ability to speak to the living as she does the dead.
