An American Girl in Paris (The American Girl in Paris Series, #1)
Aria Thompson is a fifteen-year-old New Yorker with a stunning voice that stops people in their tracks. There's just one catch-it's deep. So deep, some think it's a boy's voice.
When she's accepted in a prestigious academy in France, she leaves New York despite her father's disapproval and moves into a beautiful castle to study classical music.
But between her rivalry with the cute and popular Maxime who dislikes Americans, and a teacher who believes a girl with a low voice should be confined to minor roles, Aria's ambitions are put to the test.
And when her celebrity crush asks her to collaborate on his upcoming rock album, Aria will have to decide if the opera world is where she truly belongs.
