Flora knows better than to take shortcuts in her family home, Crackpot Hall--the house has eleven thousand rooms, and ever since her mother banished the magickal butler, those rooms move around at random. But Flora is late for school, so she takes the unpredictable elevator anyway. Huge mistake. Lost in her own house, she stumbles upon the long-banished butler--and into a mind-blowing muddle of intrigue and betrayal that changes her world forever.
Full of wildly clever plot twists, this extraordinary first novel establishes Ysabeau Wilce as a compelling new voice in teen fantasy.
This book features a teaser chapter from the second Flora book, Flora’s Dare.

Brilliant - for any age.

I absolutely love this book - I stumbled upon it a few years ago at the local library and became hooked. It's more than just a coming of age story, it deals with a lot of social issues that are still relevant today while filled with quirky wit and daring action the series draws you in and pulls you along. Flora dreams of a life different from her Family's fate. Flora is a realistic and relatable charachter for any age, who is a little stubborn and lazy, who doesn't like to follow rules or do her chores. With an unfortunate family situation that a 14 year old shouldn't have to deal with, a stubborn best friend, pirates, magic, and a decrepid old mansion that can move around of it's own accord, but seems to have lost it's ability to do so in a convenient way.

I enjoyed this book for it's family dynamics and complex characterization. The father's distress, the ghosts in the manors all add interesting aspects to the book.
