Vive La Paris

In this sequel to Esmé Raji Codell's book Sahara Special, Sahara's spunky classmate Paris McCray is back, this time with her own book. Paris's life is confusing. Her little brother keeps on getting bullied by his mean classmates. Then Paris begins taking piano lessons with old Mrs. Rosen. At first, Paris thinks that Mrs. Rosen is a spy. After all, she had weird numbers tattooed onto her arm. But this tattoo turns out being something much more different than what Paris imagined...
As Paris takes more and more lessons with Mrs. Rosen, she becomes very attached to her teacher. And during these piano lessons, Paris learns more than just music. She learns about life, how you must always look at your world through rose-colored glasses, friendship, and much more.
