My Secret Guide to Paris: 03/19/17
My Secret Guide to Paris by Lisa Schroeder is a tween fiction in the style of 13 Little Blue Envelopes by Maureen Johnson. Nora has grown up listening to her grandmother's tales of Paris and just as she is about to get her chance to experience it first hand with her, her grandmother dies.
Grandmother Sylvia, though, planned for everything and left behind two prepaid tickets for Nora and her mother and a treasure hunt of things to see and do while they are in Paris.
Now Nora is gung-ho but she's too young to go by herself. This isn't Ginny's dot-to-dot adventure. Nora is tied to her mother and if anything, this book is mostly about Nora trying to get her mother to come out of her shell and enjoy an unexpected overseas adventure.
