Ophie Peeler has always considered herself to be a Dorothy type, a girl destined for a glamorous adventure. . .someday. . .somehow. . .somewhere. And her life in fun and sunny California seemed to have an Oz-like magic. She was in every play, she sang "Over the Rainbow" to a packed school auditorium, and she had Lizzy, the best best friend ever.
But now Ophie has moved to Oregon. No glamour, no magic, and no Lizzy. Just this weird girl, Brittany Borg, who seems to have stuck herself to Ophie (and who calls her "Hey, Peeler"!).
Why oh why can't life ever be like it is in the movies?

From the Hardcover edition.
Ophie has lots of experience being the new girl in school as she moves often. But the move from California to Oregon in the middle of fourth grade is almost more than she can manage. Social outcast Brittany Borg latches on to her, making it difficult for Ophie to make her mark in her new community. Ann Marie Lee's performance gives every character a unique voice. Her portrayal of Ophie is exuberant, yet one can hear her yearning to be accepted. Lee also captures the arrogance of the popular girls and excels with the voice of Brittany, who, in spite of her social ineptitude, teaches more about life and friendship than the "cool kids."
