Basic Rating: 3/5
OK well my rating is a bit different, I did like this book, I loved the story line, and the characters were good. It wasn't my favorite read though, in the beginning it took me a while to get to like the main character Callie. When she was thrown into disaster she was a little whinny, but i suppose that is normal. I didn't have much in common with her but she turned out to be a very good character. She grew stronger and that's when i got into the book and didn't want to put it down. The other characters are very different to her, as they are in 1815 they do give off the sense and historical traits. The book has funny parts, where Callie doesn't know something or she does something totally outrageous. The story is told in an old way but with a modern mind and sass. I was just not quite happy with the ending and that was what i wished to change. Though it was a very good light read, but with just a little hint of a moral.
Plot: Callie should be having the time of her life, but right now she just feels like crawling into a hole and dying. Come on she's in England, No parents, and she's in England, But with out anyone to share this adventure with all she wants to do is go home. That is until she strikes up a brilliant plan, buy a pair of real not knock off Prada Pumps and win her way into the A-list. Though it doesn't quite work out.. Next thing she realizes is that nothing is as it seems and she needs to find her way back.
The Year is 1815 for heavens sake!

But she has more things to worry about, like what if the real friend of Emily comes back and what if i can never make it back home.
