Prada and Prejudice
This was my first Kindle read. IT WAS SO SUPER CUTE! Very clever too.The 411 from School Library Journal: Fifteen-year-old Callie’s class trip to England is, like most things in her life, remarkably unremarkable. Ever since she was overheard making a derogatory remark about cheerleaders by one of the most popular girls in school, Callie has been permanently on the D list. To her misery and embarrassment, she has been ditched by her class-trip buddy, leaving her stranded at their London hotel. A scheme to join fellow classmates on a surreptitious trip to a hot club leads to her tripping spectacularly over her new Prada heels. Upon waking from her blackout, Callie discovers that she has been transported to Regency England and is now the long-lost American friend of Emily, a well-to-do teenager. True to her character, she makes a series of faux pas with the titled gentry, earning her the disapproval of a matriarch and a dashing 19-year-old duke. Although her adjustment to an 1815 lifestyle is rough, she begins to appreciate her friendship with Emily and her surprising budding romance with the duke…
Recommendation According to Moi: Even though Callie is 15, this book is very appropriate for younger ages, I’d say 9 and up. The description is great – – transports you to 19th century England. This was a very satisfying read. I encourage you to find out what else Mandy Hubbard has up her designer sleeve at www.mandyhubbard.com
