Publisher's Summary

"A dazzling debut novel about resilience, courage, home and family." (Rebecca Stead, Newbery Award-winning author of When You Reach Me)

SoHo, 1981. Twelve-year-old Olympia is an artist - and in her neighborhood, that's normal. Her dad and his business partner Apollo bring antique paintings back to life, while her mother makes intricate sculptures in a corner of their loft, leaving Ollie to roam the streets of New York with her best friends Richard and Alex, drawing everything that catches her eye. 

Then everything falls apart. Ollie's dad disappears in the middle of the night, leaving her only a cryptic note and instructions to destroy it. Her mom has gone to bed, and she's not getting up. Apollo is hiding something, Alex is acting strange, and Richard has questions about the mysterious stranger he saw outside. And someone keeps calling, looking for a missing piece of art....

Olympia knows her dad is the key - but first, she has to find him, and time is running out. 

Lauded by critics in five-star reviews, All the Greys on Greene Street has been called "a remarkable debut" and "a triumph."

Critic Reviews

“A truly wonderful book about art and mystery, friendships and family. You are bound to fall in love with Ollie and you’ll long remember her story.” (Patricia Reilly Giff, Newbery Honor author of Lily's Crossing and Pictures of Hollis Woods)

"I’m not sure how its quiet power works, but it works; I stand in front of it, and I’m breathless. The last book that made me feel this way was Rebecca Stead's Goodbye Stranger." (Jack Cheng, award-winning author of See You In the Cosmos)

“Skillfully grounded in time and place, full of colorful characters and pearls of wisdom, Ollie’s story shows how it’s possible to save ourselves when the people around us can’t.” (Wendy Mass, New York Times best-selling author of The Candymakers)

"A brilliant mediation on the artistic life, the way shapes and color infuse perception, howconcentration can lead to illumination, and how creation is gift available to all in myriad forms.... Tucker's writing is exquisite and as precise as brush stroke. A remarkable debut." (Booklist, starred review)

Art lovers will appreciate this book

This is one of the better, most enjoyable and well-written middle grade books I've read in a while.
I loved all the references to the early 80s, the art and color that infuses the story, the brave yet sensitive handling of parental depression. I found myself frequently impressed by the masterful working of plot and the depth of this story. I will use it as a middle school book club book next year. One of my favorites.

Oh...My...Goodness!

I am so happy to have listened to this amazing book. Not only does it give us a glimpse into the life of one who struggles with depression but it tells a wonderful story about friendships & the art world. I will recommend All the Greys on Green Street to everyone who will listen to me. I thank my beautiful niece, Jennifer Nelson, for telling me about her friend's book.
