The summer her mother announces that they won't be taking their usual holiday in France, sixteen-year-old Sophie Pitt-Turnbull is aghast -- so much so that when Mummy's old art-school chum in New York suggests they trade daughters for the summer, Sophie feels her prayers have been answered. Unfortunately, there are a few details Mummy neglects to tell her. . . . Get ready for a comical case of culture clash as an uptight British teen finds herself deep in the heart of working-class Brooklyn -- and finally dares to have an adventure worth writing home about.
