Who knows, That here we are, And you’re a super star on your own

In "Prada & Prejudice" by Mandy Hubbard, Callie's year hasn't been going well .... so when she convinces her mother into letting her go on a school trip to England she thinks this is her chance to make a change in her life .... possibly become popular ... maybe make some friends .... but definitely stop being the shy girl in the crowd. However, when most of the other girls on the trip don't help her fit in .... she makes a plan to follow them to a club she overheard them talking about visiting that night and just happen to show up. So, a shopping trip is in order!! And what would make those girls notice her as someone with style? Why Prada shoes of course!! But as soon as she's buys them, puts them on, and walks out the door .... she realizes she should have tried them on .... they are a little too big and she really doesn't know how to walk in them. =0/ Then before she knows how to get her balance she falls down .. knocking her head on the concrete. After the pain subsides .... she opens her eyes to find out she is now in 1815 England!! Thankfully she finds a house/mansion not to far from where she woke up .... thinking someone could help her ... but even though the owners let her in .... they now believe she's their American friend Rebecca who was planning on staying with them for awhile. And until she can find a way back home ...... she falls into high society .... and the secrets of everyone around her ..... will she make it home (back to the 21st century) .... or will she even want to leave by the time that comes???

3.5 out of 5 stars. Parts of the story dragged on a bit .... however ... I LOVED how the author wrapped it all up ... so in a way it might possibly be believable! =0)

For more information on this book or any other Mandy's books then please check out her website.
