Prada and Prejudice

Prada and Prejudice
by Mandy Hubbard
5 out of 5 stars

Who said a school trip to London was going to be easy? And more importantly, why did Callie trip and fall in London? Maybe it was because getting used to five inch Prada heels can be difficult. Or maybe it was fate. Ever since her best friend moved, Callie has become a wannabe and waking up in 19th century England wasn’t planned on her to-do list to catch the eyes of the cool crowd. When a girl in a corset and long dress comes along and insists that Callie is Rebecca, her friend from America, Callie can’t help but take the opportunity. Falling in love with a duke, breaking a planned marriage, and going courting can be troublesome, especially when everyone thinks you are someone you’re not.

I could say, that I know several authors that could take Prada and Prejudice to the next level. I could also say that the writing was too childish. But I won’t. That would lying. Author Mandy Hubbard has a unique sense of dry humor and an eye for outstanding storylines that made this book phenomenal. The writing was charming and repeated thoughts that needed to be echoed. The metaphors are fun to think about, along with everything else. This book is great to read out-loud, especially to a group of middle school girls. The sentences are smooth and slide off the tongue so naturally, it’s easier to understand and listen to. I will be looking out for future releases by this author!
