Publisher's Summary

Most teens dream of visiting the City of Lights, but it feels more like a nightmare for Sophie Brooks. She and her brother are sent to Paris to spend the summer with their father, who left home a year ago without any explanation. As if his sudden abandonment weren't betrayal enough, he's about to remarry, and they're expected to play nice with his soon-to-be wife and stepdaughter. The stepdaughter, Camille, agrees to show them around the city, but she makes it clear that she will do everything in her power to make Sophie miserable.

Sophie could deal with all the pain and humiliation if only she could practice piano. Her dream is to become a pianist, and she was supposed to spend the summer preparing for a scholarship competition. Even though her father moved to Paris to pursue his own dream, he clearly doesn't support hers. His promise to provide her with a piano goes unfulfilled.

Still, no one is immune to Paris' charm. After a few encounters with a gorgeous French boy, Sophie finds herself warming to the city, particularly when she discovers that he can help her practice piano. There's just one hitch - he's a friend of Camille's, and Camille hates Sophie.

I want a summer in Paris too!

Love Love Loved this book! This is the kind of book that transports you to France, almost smelling the crepes and croissants! It is a book full of "the feels" when it comes to matters of the heart and family problems. Best of all it is clean where anyone of any age would enjoy! I know because I am far from a young adult but fell in love with the characters and Paris!! I even learned a few words in French! Enjoy!!

Good story line

I thought this book was written well and had a good stroy line. There were some parts in it though where I was starting to get bored and about ready to change to a different book but something new would happen and pull me back in. For the most part though this was a good read.

Cute story

While this story was not exactly for me, I love Ms. Swank and I did enjoy it. it is extremely well written, and the store is good. I just think I may not be the target audience, but I highly recommend it.

Emotional Rollercoaster

Amy McFadden is an excellent narrator. She is the redeeming factor of this audio presentation. So much arguing from the characters tempted me to stop listening a few times. There is plenty of conflict which almost gave me a headache.
