I absolutely love this memoir! J'adore! It is a book to be enjoyed and savored -- and one I will likely reread either if I am visiting Paris again or only hankering to visit Paris again.

The book is made of little sound bytes -- or if you will, word bytes -- of the small daily events that occur in a family uprooted to a new city where the teenage boy who is bilingual goes to Italian school and finds it more difficult than his previous school, and where the city sparkles with the Eiffel Tower and pastry shops and little known shops, restaurants, and pastries. Yum!

I love the honest interactions of family, raising an 11 year old daughter and a teenage son. Eloisa James is married to an Italian man who grew up in Florence. That is interesting to read also.

My advice: run out and buy this book. Or get it from Amazon. ( not sure if available for Kindle.)

Rating: ★★★★★

I have to confess that I need to get back into the book — it’s the next best thing to being there! I do love Paris. I loved walking all over Paris and using my rusty French.
