What others are saying:
Several amazing authors have read this book, and I'm so grateful for their kind words! Check out what they had to say:
"Who wouldn't love to travel back in time to ancient Rome? Amy Bearce cooks up her own magic with the help of a palm reader, a mysterious coin, and the Trevi Fountain. Another European hit!" -- Cindy Callaghan, Author: Just Add Magic, Sydney Mackenzie Knocks 'Em Dead, Saltwater Secrets.
"I loved every single second of this story! A perfect mix of humor, history, adventure, and magic. I've never been to Rome, but after getting to explore the city and her history with Lucas, I feel like I have. Do yourself a favor: read this book!"--Tera Lynn Childs, author of Oh. My. Gods., Forgive My Fins, and Sweet Venom
"From gladiators to Michelangelo, Rome jumps off the page for readers of ROME REFRAMED. Kids will love accompanying the good-hearted Lucas on his thrilling and illuminating journey through history."--Brigit Young, author of The Prettiest
"Rome Reframed combines all the elements I love in fiction: travel, magic, history, and a little romance! Lucas is less than thrilled to be spending six months traveling through Europe with his parents, especially since his friends back home seem to be moving on without him. But as he tours Rome, an encounter with a mysterious palm reader thrusts him back in time. From gladiators to Michelangelo, Lucas (and the reader!) get to interact with the city’s history. Pre-teens who liked the Magic Tree House books will love this series for older readers!" -- Tara Gilboy, author of Rewritten and Unwritten
And School Library Journal also had lovely things to say, which makes me so happy!
"A charming fictional travel companion and inspiring message for burgeoning artists that sharing art takes courage." -- School Library Journal, Laura Dooley-Taylor, middle school librarian
