Ages 8 to 12

A delightfully zany yet heartwarming middle grade novel about a young girl who takes a school trip to Paris, and the adventures that ensue.

In this delightful follow up to How to Be Brave, a familiar character from Daisy May Johnson's first book takes center stage. Edie Berger is the daughter of activists and a revolutionary (and a bit of a prankster) in her own right.

When her parents decide to follow their dreams and head out to fight for good causes, Edie is left in the care of her strict grandmother—and, ultimately, sent off to boarding school. Featuring madcap adventures in Paris, pastries, macarons, an intrepid army of first years, a secret underground network of nuns, a truly excellent art heist, lots of bravery and, of course, a duck, this is a story about figuring out your place and purpose in the world—and leaving things better than you found them.
