Prada and Prejudice Review

It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you are unpopular, in a foreign country, and a known klutz, you really shouldn't be buying $400 Prada stiletto heels. For Callie Montgomery she is all of the above. Trying to prove herself to the IT clique, she buys the aforementioned shoes and before she can say "PRADA", she trips and falls and wakes up in 1815 England. Still wearing her modern-day clothes and of course, the eponymous shoes. When Callie is mistaken for Rebecca Vaughn by a royal family, so starts a lovely comedy of manners (Manors?) and so begins a great book for the uninitiated of Jane Austen. Hubbard creates a cast of likable characters especially Callie/Rebecca. Her 21st century sensibilities tend to get her into heaps of trouble in the 19th century. She questions social mores amongst the aristocracy when she feels she is being slighted. When a forced engagement is decided upon, Callie/Rebecca decides that she must do what she can to help her friend, Emily get out of engagement that will only cause her unhappiness and sorrow. Especially when Emily's heart belongs to someone else. Throughout this adventure, Callie/Rebecca learns about herself and what it means to be your own person. And falling for a Duke helps as well! Prada and Prejudice is a cute story that will appeal to the tween/teen market. Hopefully a market that will read this and decide to give Jane Austen a try or Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre. Prada and Prejudice is published by Razorbill and is due out June 11, 2009.
