Juliet Morrow is an American art student who’s living the dream: studying and honing her craft in Paris. Of course, most days, the dream seems like a nightmare. Her instructor is an overbearing jerk. She’s broke most of the time. And the only way she can afford to stay in school is to take on annoying assignments such as painting portraits for snooty Europeans. But one of those portraits sessions proves to be a turning point, as Juliet meets Deborah, a British girl visiting Paris with her ever-present and snobbish aunt.
