Prada and Prejudice

Author: Mandy Hubbard

Available now!

Pages [paperback]: 238

Opening Lines: It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a teen girl on a class trip to England should be having the time of her life.

Favorite Character: Emily

Summary:

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 to them—particularly to Emily’s cousin Alex, a hottie and a duke, if a tad arrogant.

But can Callie save Emily from a dire engagement, and win Alex’s heart, before her time in the past is up?

More Cabot than Ibbotson, Prada and Prejudice is a high-concept romantic comedy about finding friendship and love in the past in order to have happiness in the present.

Review:

Though the title is clearly a play on Pride and Prejudice and the opening line of Prada and Prejudice is a revision of that opening line, that’s about the end of the similarities betweent the two books besides a [momentarily] shared time period.

This is a fun book that I immensely enjoyed. It didn’t take me long to read at all, but that didn’t detract from my liking it. Callie and crew are very likeable characters and  I was immediately sucked into the plot and wanted to know what was going to happen next.

One negative thing was that it started out slow. I only started to really enjoy the book after Callie was transported to 1815. After that, it picked up pace, and I was disappointed when it ended.

I’m really looking forward to reading more by this author, Mandy Hubbard. Her new novel, You Wish, is released August 5th, and I’m definitely planning on checking it out. [And not just because the main character has the same name as me. Of course not.]

Prada and Prejudice is great if you don’t have much time to read and want something that passes quickly but it still fantastic. I give it 4/5 stars.
