In this enchanting book by Anne Nesbet, Maya and her family move to Paris, and her life changes drastically. She finds that, walking down the street, she feels like she is being followed. Also, she keeps noticing that strange salamander door handles keep popping up in the oddest of places. Then, she finds that her 'aunt' Louise is so unnoticeable, you barely see or pay attention to her at all. In all the weird things that have happened, there's still much more to come for Maya, including; meeting her 'long lost relative' Henry, uncovering interesting plot, a way to steal all the charm, swede, and grace from children, a cool party, a new friend, magical places, interesting conclusions, and, most interesting and amazing of all, a cabinet that literally holds your humanity and mortality in jars, making you immortal. Can Maya juggle all these things while still remembering who she is and that she herself has a choice?
This is a GREAT book that made me roaring for more. I loved it and I know that everyone who reads it will, too!
