Just look at that cover! Just look at that blurb. I just couldn’t resist this one, but since it was a wish I just knew I had to prepare for disappointment (I generally never hear of wishes after I wished). But then, a few hours later. A mail! And yes, this girl danced in happiness.
In this book we meet Libby, a girl who loves mysteries and is about to find herself deep into an exciting mystery featuring a teacher of hers and her aunt. I just loved the mystery in this book and I had fun trying to figure out things. From the whodunnit (was it that person or maybe not) to who are those people Libby keeps seeing on the street who are super suspicious to what will be stolen next and some other things. It was very fun to read and I found that I just couldn’t put the book down.
Next to a fun mystery we also have something else that had me delighted and that had me wanting to step inside the book, and that was the whole travelling school that Libby goes to. A school that is now for a term in Paris. I just love the sound of a school that goes around the world and stops for a term in countries. In this book we see a lot of Paris. From food to the Louvre (which I would love to visit but probably never will as I am not into how busy it is) to the opera and more. Of course, at least I am assuming, there is also normal lessons next to all the fun and French ones. I just wanted to be part of that.
Oh, and at times I just wanted to hug Libby. Because of her mum.
I loved Libby’s friendship with Connie and I hope we see much more that in the next books. I love that Connie is at times saying no to Libby or telling her to stop going too far. Which I think Libby needs. XD
But there was one thing that just made me sad. One of the big reasons I picked up this book was because of Becka Moor and her illustrations and sadly this copy has very little of them as they haven’t been added. 🙁
All in all, I definitely want this book on my shelves and I hope that Jo Clarke will be writing a lot more books about Libby and her mystery/adventures. I am all in for that!
