With most of the world-building dealt with in the first book, this one gets on with the story, with a fast-moving tale that's sometimes funny, sometimes scary, and always emotionally real. The characters and their problems are engaging, surprising plot developments abound, and frequent forays into the attractions of Paris will whet the appetites of many future travelers. This is a textured, exciting venture.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
