by Jul 13, 2021Book Reviews, Middle Grade


A valuable peacock ring. A mysterious brother-sister duo. Paloma Marquez is traveling to Mexico City, birthplace of her deceased father, for the very first time. She’s hoping that spending time in Mexico will help her unlock memories of the too-brief time they spent together. While in Mexico, Paloma meets Lizzie and Gael, who present her with an irresistible challenge: The siblings want her to help them find a valuable ring that once belonged to beloved Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Finding the ring means a big reward — and the thanks of all Mexico. What better way to honor her father than returning a priceless piece of jewelry that once belonged to his favorite artist! But the brother and sister have a secret. Do they really want to return the ring or are they after something else entirely?


Me, Frida and the Secret of the Peacock Ring is an adventurous book by Angela Cervantes about a girl called Paloma Marquez who travels to Mexico City. Mexico is where her Father was born and after he passed away she thought that her time in Mexico will bring back a piece of him.

As Paloma works hand in hand with a mysterious brother-sister duo to find the stolen peacock ring, she discovers more about herself than she would have ever known. Follow her on a fantastic, crime-busting adventure put into words by this amazing author!
10/10, an awesome book to read.
