Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 05/01/2023 Jet off to Paris and the peculiar world of Jules Verne fanatics in this fun middle-grade adventure set against the backdrop of a summer class dedicated to the famous sf writer. Owen, an American kid, is spending the summer in Paris, but after a very old book falls on his head, he and his friends Nas and Rose get sucked into solving the mystery of a prophesy left by Verne himself and finding what treasure he left for future readers. The plot engagingly explores some Parisian landmarks and draws the readers into Verne’s world. Owen’s American antics are perfectly juxtaposed with those of his friends, who offer their own lived experiences as resident Rich Kid and a Libyan living in France. Full of larger-than-life twists (including a kidnapped parent, evil schemes, and police chases) this novel perfectly pairs real-life city adventures with a literary puzzle for the ages. Fans of puzzle games, fast-paced adventures with short chapters, and movies like Uncharted will devour this book. - Copyright 2023 Booklist.
