For all the young readers out there who love the sites of NYC, or would love to meet a young prince, or would love a job working in a big NYC hotel, or even living in a NYC hotel…this middle grade book is for you!
My December Day 3 pick:
AT YOUR SERVICE by Jen Malone!
Abridged blurb from the publisher:
Chloe Turner has pretty much the BEST life. She gets to live in the super fancy Hotel St. Michele. New York City is her hometown. And her dad, Mitchell Turner, concierge extraordinaire, is teaching her all the secrets of the business so she can follow in his footsteps. After helping him out with a particularly difficult kid client, Chloe is appointed the official junior concierge, tending to the hotel’s smallest, though sometimes most demanding, guests.
But Chloe hasn’t faced her toughest challenge yet. When three young royals (including a real-life PRINCE!) come to stay, Chloe’s determined to prove once and for all just how good she is at her job. Except the trip is a total disaster – Can Chloe save the day?
A thought from me:
I stumbled upon this book while perusing Twitter one day and I raced out to buy it. I read it right away- definitely my kind of modern fairy tale like book. So fun, so adventurous and so full of heart. Chloe is capable and lovable, and she lives in a fancy hotel. What young girl wouldn’t want to be her…or at least read about her??
