Adventuring in London

Phoebe's sister, Alice, is getting older and they're no longer as close as they used to be. Phoebe wants nothing more than for things to go back to how they used to be when she and Alice did everything together. When Phoebe discovers a "spell" in a compact to bring two sisters closer, she decides it's her only hope to get the old Alice back.

Phoebe enlists the help from her friend Ned and they follow the clues that lead them all around London. It's an adventure to them and also their very own secret, but will it help her and Alice become friends again? That's the only thing Phoebe is worried about.

I loved that this book was about trying to rebuild a relationship with your sibling. It's true that as you grow older, there's that chance of growing apart. It happens before you even realize it and this story was all about being a sister and a daughter. The secrecy of it all made the story more intriguing, but it also teaches that secrets don't really remain hidden forever.


Final Verdict: This was an inspiring book about sisterhood and I would recommend it to those with siblings or who love adventure.
