In an apartment full of questions, on a street full of mysteries, lives Squishy Taylor. Squishy is a brave, ridiculous, big-hearted mystery-solver. She and her stepsisters (who she calls ‘bonus-sisters’, because they were the bonus she got when she moved in with her dad) launch themselves into a series of adventures featuring runaways, diamond smugglers, hackers, hauntings and their super-cute baby brother.
What the critics say:
Thank you @Ailsawild for creating such a cool children's character in Squishy Taylor. Authentic Aussie kid. My peeps love her.
As per usual she had 20 minutes to read before bed. 40 minutes later her light was still on! We eventually got her to turn the light out. She was totally hooked on the book. Unbeknown to us the next morning she was up before the sun and was again reading... She has always enjoyed reading but has never had such a strong connection to a book.
