Book Summary of The Way I Found Her

The narrator of The Way I Found Her is a teenaged English boy, Lewis. Clever, precocious and full of curiosity, he spends the hot summer of 1994 exploring Paris with a red setter dog, while his mother translates the latest medieval romance by luscious bestselling novelist, Valentina Gavrilovich. Living in Valentina's apartment is magical and Valentina herself gradually casts an emotional spell over Lewis. But this enchanted world is suddenly lost....and Lewis is driven on a terrifying quest. The workings of Lewis's mind, his humour, his quirky opinions, his choice of words and vision of the world, will give readers of this novel an experience which is utterly out of the ordinary.

Martin November 05, 2011 review from Goodreads

A precocious 13-year-old boy narrates this story, set in and evocative of Paris.

Ana Emilia March 28, 2012 review from Goodreads

The most enjoyable part of this novel for me was the trip through Paris; the sweetness of the pasteries in the cafes on Rue Rembrandt, shopping at the colorful outdoor markets, and the trips to Parc Monceau with Sergi the dog.
