I read this book as a kid, and it still stands out to this day... I could relate to Olivia so much (being ostracized, trying to deal with siblings, wanting to please others) and I felt her pain and need for cash flow.*__*

But just like me, Olivia chose to follow her heart over her "need" for material gain, therefore making it a satisfactory ending.

The book was really good. Olivia, the main character, was very curious. In the story, she was spying on her friend. Her cousin, Jeffery, was adventurous. He went with Olivia wherever she went, but he went to a toy store. The book was funny too. When she went to the store with her cousin, they got off hand and started playing with the toys.
