Amy’s mom’s wedding is fast approaching — and where better to find the perfect bridesmaid dresses than on a spontaneous trip to Paris?
It seems that nobody has time for thirteen-year-old Amy these days! Her boyfriend, Seth, is preoccupied with his mom’s health. Amy’s dad barely knows she exists after her half-sister is born prematurely (thanks so much, Amy, for getting your stepmother to the hospital on time!). And Mom is having meltdowns about her impending wedding. So a whirlwind trip to Paris with Amy’s cool teenage aunt, Clover, couldn’t come at a better time, especially since the school’s French class (and Amy’s beau) happen to be there as well. Now why wouldn’t her boyfriend enjoy having Amy track him down by GPS and surprise him in the City of Light? Hold on to your beret, les filles are on their way!
The Parisian backdrop, appealing first-person voice, and the realistic situations Amy finds herself in make this entry in the Ask Amy Green series a good choice for younger teens. —Booklist Online
