Synopsis

At her school in California, fourth-grader Ophie Peeler has it all: starring roles in all the school plays, plenty of attention and, of course, the best best friend a girl could ask for. Like Dorothy, Ophie is on the yellow brick road to a glamorous, adventurefilled life. But all of that changes when Ophie and her family move to Oregon, trading in the California sunshine for a dreary, rain-soaked life. The popular girls at school shun Ophie, Brittany Borg (the class oddball) follows her around, and to top it all off, Ophie outgrows her treasured ruby slippers. Will Ophie find a way to fit in, or has her one chance at happiness just sailed away over the rainbow?
