Very fun romp through Paris through the eyes of 14-year-old Californian girl Mac, who ends up on a crazy adventure to save the City of Light from going permanently dark, with the help of a ragtag group of French cabbies. Fast-paced and full of laughs, although a bit too predictable in parts. Full review to come in Quill & Quire.
I was underwhelmed by the story. Too muddled for me and not enough of a connection with the main character Mac. To me it's a bad combination of Cody Banks, City of Ember, and Lizzie Maguire. The conclusion was a little anitclimactic and I just can't reccommend it.

Light-hearted, quirky and magical. A whirlwind adventure through the City of Light.
