Charley Parker and her friend George, a wheelchair user, are on a tour of Europe. Charley is a musician. George manages her social media. Both are aged just 12. Their itinerary takes them to Amsterdam, Rome, Tours and London. In each city by a strange coincidence whenever the duo are present a valuable work of art disappears from a museum. Of course Charley and George become the prime suspects for the robberies. Their best way of escaping suspicion is to find the true culprits. Then perhaps they will be allowed to finish the tour in peace.
As a wheelchair user herself, this reviewer had to suspend disbelief as soon as she read. In his wheelchair George can board and leave aircraft, enter any kind of public area and (at one point of the story) get up in the middle of the night, get in his wheelchair, leave the apartment and venture forth into the night. The nearest this narrative comes to mentioning the barriers and delays that are the inevitable concomitants of life in a wheelchair is when the cobblestones on a Rome street provide George with a momentary irritation. Readers who are intent only on an exciting fantasy will find this novel rewarding. Readers who prefer books rooted in reality may enjoy the book if they can manage the massive suspension of disbelief required to ignore its improbabilities.
