Serena is in Paris with a strict itinerary that takes her to the places her parents visited on their honeymoon.  Serena’s father passed away two years ago, and Serena is hoping to make a scrapbook with pictures of all her parents’ favorite spots to give to her mom for Christmas.  From the beginning of her trip, nothing goes as plan, especially her unexpected tour guide, a boy named Jean-Luc.  Where Serena is organized and has a singular focus, Jean-Luc tries to get Serena to enjoy the city and along the way they help each other.  

This is a simple love story between two eighteen-year-old kids.  The premise of the story isn’t very believable, but I enjoyed the sweet development of their relationship.  I also enjoyed the setting of Paris.
