First she is hailed as a heroine, then a vicious vandal. For Alexandra, the great-grand niece of Walter Mitty (the ultimate day dreamer), reality too often intrudes upon her rich fantasy world. In addition to finding the real vandal, Xandra must navigate the murky waters of eighth grade, deal with a bully, caretake her younger misfit brother, and ignore her popular older brother. Growing up, she discovers, is about growing but it is also about painful truths, startling moments of anger and confusion, and finding the ways to climb up, over, under, around, and through that Glass Mountain called life.
It is Xandra’s love of stories that makes her look at things differently. These stories shelter her and help her to find answers – sometimes. As much as her stories mark her as different, however, they also help her to cope and ultimately triumph in this humorous story of love, family, sacrifice, and forgiveness.
