Sixteen-year-old Cherokee Salamanca is thrilled with the idea of visiting London. She's fed up with her family and with Brooklyn. Brooklyn is about as romantic and as interesting as a hot dog; London is old and cultured and very close to Europe. But when she swaps lives with British teenager Sophie Pitt-Turnbull, she gets more than she bargained for. Dealing with her London misadventures takes humour and determination; but, as her adopted family realize, you can take the girl out of Brooklyn, you can't take Brooklyn out of the girl!
