Album 65: Expect the UnexpectedAlbum 65: Expect the Unexpected

There’s never a dull moment in the town of Odyssey! From a mysterious police investigation to an internship at a funeral home, every situation leads to unexpected results. When Zoe Grant and Olivia Parker start a new talk show, they reluctantly choose Jay Smouse as their first guest. But his talent of stuffing his mouth with jelly beans leads to frantic and frightening consequences. An impromptu Parker family picnic turns into an unusual opportunity for David as he decides to go to extreme lengths to prove a point to his kids about initiative. And Buck and the Meltsners face a sudden dilemma when a social worker questions Eugene and Katrina’s role as Buck’s guardians. Don’t miss out on a single shock, twist, or turn as the folks in Odyssey learn about fame, friendship, family, and more in these six exciting stories.

  • October 20: The Sandwich Initiative
  • October 27: The Toy

    Hey y’all! I’m lilarry1 from the aio club which is usually post but today I am looking for a girl named Katlyn. She used to have the club and we became friends over chatting. But then her membership ran out so we can’t chat anymore. But I know she chats here sometimes i just have no idea where. And I don’t know her username here. On the club it was redforjesus. So if you’re here Katlyn…Hi from your friend, also Kaitlyn!!
