On the morning of the town fair Lily did not believe in elves. Lily’s main concerns were fitting in with the other kids in her high school and her Dad’s refusal to re-engage with life after her mother’s death. All that changes when she and her friend Jackson fall into a mysterious, gaping hole on the outskirts of town. They find themselves in a cavernous underground world inhabited by a people who call themselves ‘the Hidden.’ While Lily and Jackson make friends with some Hidden their own age, it soon becomes clear that the leaders have no plans to allow them to return to the surface, where they might reveal the existence of the secret world of the Hidden. Lily suspects there is more to the Hidden’s desire to keep her and her friend among them and that their ‘fall’ into the hole may have been no accident.
When she finds an odd looking egg in the forest behind her house she decides to hide it in her bedroom in the hope that it will hatch into a lizard. What she gets is ‘Bubbles’, the oddest, fastest growing lizard she has ever seen. It doesn’t take long for her annoying little brother to discover her secret pet. It also doesn’t take long for Bubbles to grow out of her room. Lizzy begins to wonder whether Bubbles is a lizard at all, or something even more amazing. But how will Lizzy keep Bubbles a secret? And what will happen to Bubbles if anyone finds out about him?
