Anne (weeble) | 13 comments We had a child come into the library last night insisting she had borrowed a book from us last year and described it as follows:

"kids fantasy about a girl who never leaves the house and her mom one day doesn't come back and maybe she hears pictures and has the crazy and there's some lions named regal and royal and there's maybe the house on the cover with lions"

She thinks it was published in this last decade but we are coming up blank. Does this ring a bell with anyone?

Edit to add: chapter book

Is this for younger children, middle grade, or YA?
Chapter book or picture book?

If you search through the book on GoogleBooks, there is a lion named Royal and one named Regal.
