My Review:Cleveland Rosebud Potts has a plan. If she can check off the six items on her très important Paris Project List she will make it out of the small-minded and scorching town of Sassafras, Florida, to a rich and cultured life at The American School of Paris.
Unfortunately, everything seems to conspire against Cleveland reaching her goal.
Cleveland is ashamed of her father and angry that her mother and sister are never around because they have to work extra shifts to help out the family. Her Eiffel Tower tin has zero funds. And to top it all off, Cleveland’s best friend Jenna Finch has decided she’s too fancy for her and her neighbor Declan seems to be hiding something.
As Cleveland puts her talents to the test, she must learn how to forgive family for their faults, appreciate friends for exactly who they are, and bloom where she’s planted—even if that’s in a tiny town in central Florida that doesn’t even have a French restaurant. C’èst la vie!
I don't normally read a lot of middle grade books but I couldn't resist with this cover and this premise. I was not disappointed-- this was so sweet. I immediately loved Cleveland, her family and her friends. This is truly a heartfelt story for middle grade readers and the author did an excellent job!
The Paris Project comes out next month on October 8, 2019, and you can purchase HERE. Definitely recommend this for Middle Grade fans!
"I need to live somewhere more open-minded." Georgia pointed her nail file toward me. "This whole place is stifling."
"That's just the humidity."
