“Queen” Zoe protests having her sister Addie move from their parents’ room into her realm, but on the fourth night she has reason to be glad for a roommate.
Zoe is the queen of her room. Each night after lights out, she flips on her lamp and takes a stroll of her kingdom. Life is good until her parents decide it’s time to move her little sister in to be her roommate. Zoe tries to continue her late-night escapades, but even being as careful as possible she still manages to wake up her sister.
