 For More Information


Raising teenagers is all but easy.   Sadie Ford and her teenage daughter, Scarlett, have recently gone through a divorce.  Scarlett being 17 runs away.  Where does she go?? Paris.  All her mother can think of when she finds out is that all the terrorism and prostitution that is taking place.    The author places the reader right in the middle of this mother's worry and desperation.  If you've ever had a teenager and they ran away, I'm sure you can relate to Sadie.
The characters are well developed and real.  You can relate to them in their emotions, actions and what they do.  You follow Scarlett and find the reason she ran away is a French exchange student who was going back home.  Just like a mom trying to find her daughter before something terrible happens, she jumps on a plane and goes to Paris.  She isn't the only one looking for the two teens, so is the boy's father.  They decide to search together.  The author takes you to Marseille, the rather dark side.  While spending time together, Sadie and Auguste get to know each other.  Will a romance ensue?   Letting life go by without pursuing your dreams may become a 360 turn.
Very real, very developed characters, fast paced, but not to the point you lose track.  Follow Sadie and Auguste in their search for their children.  You'll find you can't lay the book down.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Paulita Kincer and PUYB in exchange for my unbiased and honest view.

I would give this book  5 STARS.
