Goodreads: A tween’s foreign exchange experience lands her in London luxury—and some hot water as well!
Twelve-year-old Jordan isn’t unhappy, but she’s definitely bored. So when she gets the chance to take part in a London exchange program, she’s thrilled to ditch her small town in Delaware and see the world across the pond.
Unfortunately, Jordan’s host sister in London, Caroline, isn’t exactly enthusiastic about entertaining an American girl. Despite the chilly welcome, Jordan finds herself loving the city and Caroline’s group of friends, who are much nicer than Caroline herself.
And then a major misstep leaves Jordan and Caroline trapped together overnight—inside Daphne’s, the world’s largest department store. Given they have complete access to all the fancy shoes, designer dresses, and coolest makeup around, there are worse places to be stuck. But when the girls’ fun has not-so-fun consequences, Jordan’s wish for excitement abroad turns into a lot more than she ever bargained for..
Ope’s Opinion: This is a cute, quick read. I will definitely be putting it on my granddaughter Emma’s shelf. It is a great pleasure to read, review, and save books for her.
This is every young girls dream – to be locked in a department store.
This may not be a realistic book, but it is very cute and one I would recommend to parents looking for something to keep their girls reading.
