The Lovereading4Kids comment
Sky is a time traveller (a stravagante) and through his eyes but through two different worlds; his own and a parallel one he and his fellow stravaganti must resolve tensions between rival families which threaten to destroy everything held dear.

Stravaganza: City Of Flowers by Mary Hoffman
Sequel to "City of Masks" and "City of Stars", the narrative moves to the Talian equivalent of the city of Florence, where beauty and danger walk - as ever - hand in hand. The focus this time is on the new Stravagante, Sky, whose talisman is an ornate and delicate blue glass bottle. Sky is propelled right into the midst of a deadly feud between the di Chimici and Nucci families, who think nothing of sliding a knife between a man's ribs for revenge. A breathtaking and thrilling drama with a very special kind of magic, continuing the stories of Luciano, Arianna, Rodolfo, Falco and Georgia, which fans will sieze upon with glee.
'A baroque thriller about art, murder, love and family. Gorgeously produced, these books are a joy to hold as well as read.' The Times
