Descripción del producto
Reseña del editor
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.

Callie is usually really clumsy and she always feels like a geek. She made a mistake and talked to her best friend on the phone in the bathroom at school and a popular chearleader was there and hasn't allowed her to forget it. Emily is so sweet, upbeat, and thrilled to have Rebecca there. Emily is engaged to be married to a man she doesn't really know and she's been depressed about it. They are staying at Alex the Duke of Harksbury's estate and his mother Victoria lives there as well. He seems very stuffy and he doesn't seem to care about others. He's good looking and young but he has an air of superiority it seems. Callie wants to be a real friend and to help Emily and so she goes about helping her get out of her engagement so she can be with who she really wants to. She soon learns there is so much more to Alex than how he appears. She has immense guilt for pretending to be Rebecca.
Definitely worth reading.
Overall, this is an enjoyable and credible modern twist on the classic. It has creative plot parallels to the original book. In addition, Callie's character development is interesting and relatable. Anyone who likes Jane Austen should like this version of the story, although readers expecting something deep or intellectual will be disappointed.
This is a light, funny young adult romance. It's very clean and sweet, too. While it didn't blow me away, I really enjoyed reading it and would gladly recommend this book to teens of any age that like Jane Austen, romance, and humor.
Content: Some taking of the Lord's name in vain. Clean otherwise.
This is one of those books you'll hate to put down, because every chapter is so much fun. You'll find yourself rooting for the awkward Callie as she eventually grows more confident in herself. You'll drool for the sexy duke Alex, and when Callie finally does find her "footing", you'll cheer for her! Based very loosely on Pride and Prejudice, this humorous teen time-travel romance is the perfect escape.
Callie is a very modern girl. There is nothing wrong with her, she just doesn't get along with her peers. When her class travels to London before her sophomore year, she thinks this is her opportunity at becoming popular (or at least somewhat fit in). Well... not quite. She purchases a pair of Prada pumps in hopes of fitting in better. Well, after wearing them for about ten feet, she trips, bumps her head, and ends up 1815.
Afraid and alone, she passes herself off as Rebecca Vaughn, the Thornton-Hawke's American friend. She tries to fit in, but finally begins to wing-it and be herself. She gains a true friend in Emily, grudgingly earns the respect of the handsome nineteen-year-old duke, Alex, and even his mother, Victoria, the dowager duchess.
When things finally start to fall into place, Callie learns that Rebecca's ship is due in only a few days, causing all of her insecurities to return.
Surprisingly, I wasn't able to guess the ending: will she stay in 1815 or return to present day?
The book is short and in large font, super easy read. However, it is adorable. Perfect for a teen read, but also enjoyable for an older audience.
