Review: Lost in London by Cindy Callaghan

A tween’s foreign exchange experience lands her in London luxury—and some hot water as well! Twelve-year-old Jordan isn’t unhappy, but she’s definitely bored. So when she gets the chance to take part in a London exchange program, she’s thrilled to ditch her small town in Delaware and see the world across the pond. Unfortunately, Jordan’s host sister in London, Caroline, isn’t exactly enthusiastic about entertaining an American girl. Despite the chilly welcome, Jordan finds herself loving the city and Caroline’s group of friends, who are much nicer than Caroline herself. And then a major misstep leaves Jordan and Caroline trapped together overnight—inside Daphne’s, the world’s largest department store. Given they have complete access to all the fancy shoes, designer dresses, and coolest makeup around, there are worse places to be stuck. But when the girls’ fun has not-so-fun consequences, Jordan’s wish for excitement abroad turns into a lot more than she ever bargained for...

Received for review.

From the moment I saw this cover I knew I would love this book and I did!  It was an absolutely adorable read for all ages.  Jordan was just such a sweet, normal girl and it was nice to read about her adventures in London.

Caroline, while not the nicest person in the world, was also not an out and out mean girl and, while rich, didn't flaunt her money or behave badly a la Gossip Girl.  

This was a light, fun, upbeat read and I highly recommend it.  I also look forward to the author's future releases!
