Mira's Mom disappears and then what happens to Mira? It's cool how Mira disappears into Paris way back. This book was exciting, Mysterious and it leaves you wanting to find out what happens in the next book.

This was an overall good book it is about a girl who is trying to find her lost mom in Paris but then she realizes that she is in the wrong time .
the end of the book is too much of a cliffhanger in my opinion because at the end she is so close to finding her mom but then the book just ends. if you like cliffhangers and time travel then this is a good book for you

If you like reading about history with a little bit of fantasy-fiction, then this is a great book for you. They give you a lot of detail about the point in history, but they make it fun with fantasy. I recommend reading the author's note at the end of the book first because it makes the storyline a little more understandable.

Mira's mom suddenly disappears. Soon Mira gets lost in Paris because of her insane ability of time travel. Can Mira find her mom and get back to the rest of her family? I thought this book was okay?

Mira’s Diary is a book about a girl who gets unexpectedly thrown back in time to Paris in the late 1800’s. However, there are some inconsistencies on that front. There are too many random French people who can speak flawless English. Also, once in a while our main character, Mira, is suddenly able to read long sentences in French even though she admits to never having been taught in it. Mira also sometimes seems slightly too romantically driven, even though many very important things are at stake. For instance on page 58 when Claude has kissed Mira’s hand, Mira thinks A kiss! At last! The use of exclamation points here is not needed. It would make Mira sound much more mature and grateful if these sentences are punctuated with periods. Otherwise this book is good. Clearly, the author intends to have a sequel, since it ends on a cliffhanger.

Not so great.

This is possibly one of the best time travel books I have ever read. When Mira travels back in time to save her mother, she finds herself stuck in the middle of something much bigger than that. If Mira can not save Dreyfus, all hope for her life and her brother's life ever being safe again may be lost...

This is a really good book, but it is a bit strange. Mira accidentally goes back in time. Can she escape or will she be stuck in history forever

Great Book!

I learned alot about Paris and lot of beautiful sights. I love learning about Paris and being able to picture all of the beautiful places. A family should always be together!

This book is a no-go.

This book was just OK

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

This book was OK, but it was quite boring and hard to follow. The time travel is strange, and the only good part is when Mira sees the postcard from her mom. Then it gets tense, but it completely slows down. Don't read this book unless you really like art and traveling through time.

Very Creepy, And Pretty Boring

I didn't like this book, it wasn't fun to read. It was like a chore you have to do it. The only part I liked was the ending, it was sweet (: . So all out don't read this book unless your obsessed with time travel.

I think it would be awesome to be like Mira, a girl who can time travel! If I wanted to change history, I actually could! I loved it so much, I could not stop reading! I read for 2 hours and 31 minutes straight!

Hard to follow but cool!

I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

When I was reading the book I felt like I was lost in her world I couldn't put it down! This topsy-turvy time moving story was the best! You better get it or else you would want to GO BACK IN TIME.

LOVE IT

Mira's Diary was amazing! It was about a girl who traveled back in time to the eighteen-hundreds, and met lots of famous and interesting people. She goes on a quest through time to stop something bad from happening in the future. Will she succeed?

Interesting story!

I really liked this book I would recommend this to almost anyone. I already have to all my family. I saw some people said it was creepy but I really don't think it is at all. This book also taught me about the history of France and about many artists such as Degas, Mary Cassatt and Lola.

Great Plot!!!!

I really liked this book. It has an amazing plot. I loved the story and how realistic it was. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. I realized there IS a book 2 but the ending for book 1 was not very satisfying. So you should DEFINITELY read this book, but also book 2.

creepy!

I really enjoyed this book and I wanted to keep reading more of this story. Some parts of this book are a little bit scary but it always turns out pretty good. This book is really fun because you go back in time in Paris where you meet famous people from a long time ago. If you like time travel, you will like this book. I also thought that this was a very suspenseful, emotional and special book to read.

Review by Margalit

Marissa Moss
Author of Mira's Diary: Lost in Paris

"Each new book is still a challenge. It’s hard work and I love every minute of it!"

Marissa Moss is an author AND an illustrator! When Marissa was nine years old, she wrote her first picture book and sent it to publishers. It wasn’t published, but as a grown-up, Marissa tried again and now she has published over forty books!

Marissa thinks that keeping your own diary or notebook, like her character Mira does, is a great idea! Here are some tips for how to start:

  • No one is the boss of your notebook except you. You can do whatever you want.
  • Since you can do whatever you want, have fun!
  • Add pictures! Sometimes it’s easier (and more fun) to draw something than to write about it.
