Overview

Mac’s school trip to Paris turns into an adventure she never imagined.

Fourteen-year-old California girl Mackenzie, known as Mac, goes on a school trip to Paris where she meets up with an old musician friend of her dad’s, Rudee Daroo, who now makes a living as a cab driver. Rudee reveals that some of the greatest monuments in Paris are being either destroyed or stolen and that the city is slowly becoming darker.

Mac finds herself in league with a crew of crazy cabbies and their friends as she tries to right these wrongs. She encounters sinister, shadowy characters who live in the Paris underground, a philosopher gendarme, a gypsy who can dance people into dream states, and gargoyles come to life. From dodging her school group to a heart-stopping encounter atop Notre Dame Cathedral, Mac needs all the resources she can muster to help Paris remain the "City of Light."

Editorial Reviews

Canadian Materials magazine
Mac in the City of Light is an action-packed tale that gives young readers an intriguing glimpse of Parisian life and culture. It features numerous colourful characters, including Rudee Daroo with his great passion for beets and his odd but amusing sayings, and villains who are satisfyingly malicious.
Quill & Quire
With its fast pace and abundance of laughs, Mac's adventure is a great page-turner.
Resource Links
This slightly off-beat romp carries a whiff of steampunk, travelogue and Bridget does Pairs” new-age style, all roll into one. . .The semi-fantastical events work to keep reader’s interest and give a coordinated alternate view of a city that has been marketed as “MacParis” perhaps once too often.
