Synopsis: To impress the popular girls on a high school trip to London, klutzy Callie buys real Prada Heels. But trying them on, she trips…Conks her head…and wakes up in the year 1815. There Callie meets Emily, who takes her in, mistaking her for a long-lost friend. As she spends time with Emily’s family, Callie warms up to them-particularly to Emily’s cousin Alex, a hottie, a duke, and a tad arrogant. But can Callie save Emily form a dire engagement, and win Alex’s heart, before her time in the past is up? More Cabot than Ibbotson, Prada & Prejudice is a high-concept romantic comedy about finding friendship and love in the past in order to have happiness in the present.
I really enjoyed this book. It’s a very cute spin on a timeless classic.
Callie is a girl we can all relate to. She decides to live it up in London, but after falling flat on her face ends up in 1815. She uses her 21st century knowledge, to help fix the problems of the past. Only, her good intentions turn out to be disastrous. But the confidence she finds in the past, helps shape her future.
Preteen to adult, if you like YA romance you will definitely enjoy this story.
