Nora loves everything about Paris. She’s never actually been there, she’s only visited through her Grandma Sylvia’s stories. Just when they’ve finally planned a trip together, Grandma Sylvia is suddenly gone, taking Nora’s dreams with her. Nora is crushed. While searching through her grandmother’s things, Nora finds a letter and a Paris treasure map, along with airline tickets for three. She has to talk her mother into going on the trip but eventually it happens. Finally off she goes to Paris, with her mother and brother, on the treasure hunt of a lifetime.

This is a delightful story with many interesting facts about Paris and the hard part of losing a loved one.
