The idea for this story come from a true incident that I once experienced with a friend. Our high school group traveled to Europe, with Paris as one of its destinations. We spent one day at the Louvre, exploring on our own. My friend Krista and I noticed it was time to go, but we could not find our way back to where we were supposed to meet. It took us a while and when we got back our group hod already gone. We were left by ourselves, not knowing what to do. After a run-in with the guards, our group eventually came back for us.I will always remember this experience in my life, and the things that went along with it. The rooms of the Louvre are so vivid in my mind because I went through them so many times, looking for a way back. It is partly because of this experience that I remember the trip so vividly. In writing this book, I wanted to help the reader relate more to the art and to the museum because of what happens i n the story.The story is about a ten-year-old girl named Sophie who travels to the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. She goes with her teacher, Miss May, and her classmates. Sophie is so excited about experiencing the art that she unknowingly follows the wrong group. She gets lost and must ask someone for help. With the help of Luc, who works in the museum, Sophie finds her teacher and learns a lot in the process.
