I was lying in bed one day, sick as a dog, and I decided to pick this one up just for some entertainment. While I started it with low expectations, I was pleasantly surprised.
Callie, your typical not so popular teenager goes on a class trip to England, she finds her self ditched by her trip partner, and stuck in a hotel. So when she goes out and does a little shopping, she comes out with a pair of red Prada heels. As she steps out of the store, she takes a tumble and finds herself transported to the 18th century. While she's there, she becomes friends with Emily, a well to do girl who is currently trapped in an unwanted marriage. And things really start to take a turn when she finds herself into a new romance with the arrogant but incredibly handsome Duke. So what is a modern girl in a not so modern world to do? Cause trouble, of course.
The book was a cute read, even though the writing was simple at times and the plot fairly predictable. I finished it that same day, and I found myself getting a few good laughs and swooning at her unpredictable relationship with the Duke.
Callie is a cute character that I think a lot of teens could relate too, and her personality is fun and quirky. All in all, an enjoyable read that I would suggest to anyone. I give it a 7/10.
