Booklist Reviews 2016 April #2

Being a sister is hard. Older sister Alice, coming down hard off of her first heartbreak, is always calling Phoebe "immature" and "childish," and Phoebe wishes that their relationship could be better, closer, and sweeter. With university costs rising wildly, the family is struggling to stay afloat, and when Phoebe finds an antique Cartier compact at a Paris market, it might be the salvation they all need. It's not just because of the windfall—there's a secret "spell" inside. Phoebe and her best friend Ned set out to follow the spell and visit a list of famous London locations (Trafalgar Square, Twinings Tea) in hopes of fixing what's broken between the sisters, following in the footsteps of a pair of sisters separated by war decades before. True to form, Schroeder's companion to My Secret Guide to Paris (2015) is a quick, charming read. The London setting and focus on two sisters make this ideal for readers who are a bit above the fluffy Cupcake Diaries series and its contemporaries. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Horn Book Guide Reviews 2016 Fall

When twelve-year-old Brit Phoebe finds a WWII-era letter with a "spell" to bring two people closer, she hopes it'll fix her relationship with older sister Alice. The letter leads Phoebe to London's iconic locations, giving readers a breezy intro to British history. Though this companion to My Secret Guide to Paris is predictable, Schroeder deftly describes the growing pains siblings can experience.
