Tween Tuesday Review: Lost in London

Jordan's tired of being boring. So she's excited when her parents agree to a foreign exchange program in London. Finally she gets to leave her small town behind and have an adventure.

She does have to create school project when she gets back, but if she takes tons of videos and pictures, that won't be hard at all. And there's so much she wants to see in London. When she arrives, she's surprised that only a driver is there to meet her.

When she arrives at the house of her mother's friend, Caroline doesn't seem thrilled to host her. Caroline makes it clear that she'd rather hang out with her friends and go shopping like usual. She allows Jordan to tag along on the first day.

When a twist leaves Caroline and Jordan overnight in the store, it could lead to the two girls becoming friends. But fate has a different idea in mind when they're secret is discovered and things get a little out of hand.

My Thoughts: I loved this book - it made me want to travel to London so badly. I liked Caroline's friends -the smart and quirky Ellie, the sweet boy who loves food in Sam, and Gordo who alwaya seemed up for an adventure. I did grow to like Caroline as the book progresses. Mostly I envied Jordan at getting to see London. I've never been there, but this book captured a great city and great beginning of friendships. I didn't want this book to end.

Cover Thoughts: Love it!

I REALLY want to read this book! It sounds really good! I've never been to London either, which is one of the reasons I love reading books set there! I live vicariously through books! ;) Glad to see you liked this book!
