'Olive lives with her beloved grandparents in a small, isolated community. Her grandparents have scrimped and saved to send her to boarding school where she can meet kids her own age.

'Faced with disappointing her grandparents, Olive, who is not a boy nor a talking animal, pretends to be an acrobat so that she can stay on. Now she has a month to learn how to leap, somersault and overcome her fear of heights.
'With exploding lamingtons, a vicious school bully, talking animals and new faces, can Olive leap over these obstacles, become an actual acrobat and find a place to fit in?' (Publication summary)
