Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-A trip to Florence suits Hollywood-native Cat Crawford just fine for her birthday, but she is not happy about the huge sweet-16 party her soon-to-be-stepmother wants to throw. A solitary afternoon of sightseeing ends at a gypsy tent, where a fortune teller says to the teen, "A great adventure is in store for you. Be sure to keep your mind open to the lessons ahead." When she leaves the tent, she discovers that she has traveled back in time to Renaissance Italy and is now Patience D'Angeli, a distant family relative. Her one reminder of the present is her backpack of makeup and modern gadgets. She finally shares her secret with her younger cousin, who then tries to help her fit in as a proper young lady. Lorenzo, a dashing young man and fellow artist, catches her eye, but the smitten girl finds herself betrothed to a much older, creepy guy. All turns out well in the end. Girls will like the romance and the many gorgeous young men (past and present). The details of the Renaissance dress and artwork, which add to the story's historical setting, clash with modern-day slang terms, providing a good amount of humor. Light and charming, this debut novel will appeal to those who want to leave the real world behind for a while.-Diana Pierce, Leander High School, TXα(c) Copyright 2011.

I have been basically reading depressing, dystopian YA novels for the past month, and needed a lighthearted read to shake things up. This book had been getting good reviews so I decided to give it a try.

My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century by Rachel Harris is a cute read that focuses on Cat, a cynical but somewhat spoiled 16 year old, who doesn't want her father to marry his current girlfriend, although all signs point to her being pretty nice. Sounds like your typical teen novel. Then enters a twist. Cat and her family go to Florence, where she meets a magical gypsy (aren't they all?) who whisks her off to the 16th century to "learn some lessons." OK, I'm making this a little more basic than the plot really is-- but essentially, we are swept away like Cat, and watch this modern teen try to make it in the 16th century. Gorgeous gowns, hot guys, and intrigue all abound in this book.

There's a lot to like about this book. Cat, although spoiled, is a fun protagonist. That's a tough balance to make but Harris pulls it off. I loved all the descriptions of both the modern world and the old world. The art references, etc, are great as well, and I learned a thing or two! I liked that Cat also was able to fumble and fall but get up again (HEART the singing debacle!), as she wasn't perfect the first (or maybe second) time around. And she definitely had some room to grow and develop over the course of the novel. Alessandra was a wonderful side character, and I enjoyed learning about Cat's family, overall.

My biggest beef with this book, which is not as much a criticism of the book but more of an opinion about it, is how clueless Cat is, almost to the point of me exclaiming, "How did you not see that coming?

Before I get into my review of this awesome novel, I would like to say a few special words about the beautiful lady who is also an amazing writer, Rachel Harris. I met Ms. Rachel Harris through my daughter. Rachel and my daughter are cirque partners, and I was asked to be a beta reader for Rachel's MSSSC. I would just like to say to Rachel that it was an honor and a wonderful privilege to be a part of My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century. Rachel is an amazing writer and storyteller, which I instantly knew when I read the first page of this novel. I am so happy to tell you Congratulations! Rachel, your dream has come true, and I love being able to call you Author Rachel Harris!

Cat is an artist, and she's always wanted to go to Italy since fourth grade when she saw the Orley's Madonna and Child with Apples and Pears painting. Cat even got a tattoo of a pear on her right hip because of her love for that time period of famous artists, and also because it holds sentimental meaning for her. So when her Dad takes her to Florence, Italy for her soon-to-be sweet sixteenth, she's super excited. But Cat also knows her dad is hoping this trip will be a kind of peace offering between her and Jenna , her dad's fiancée. Cat will take getting to go to Italy any way she can, even if it means tolerating Jenna.

Cat is going to get one heck of a sixteen birthday adventure of her life. When Cat enters a gypsy tent to find out her future, she exits into 1505--Renaissance Florence, Italy. What Cat lost in her present day life can only be found in the Italy of the past, and a gorgeous boy named Lorenzo Cappelli.

My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century is about Cat learning to trust and open her life and heart again, even when it means love could break her heart.

Format: Paperback
This review is hard for me because I am trying to figure out how I can express to you just how endearing and sweet this read was for me without giving anything away.

I guess the best way would be with one simple word, Lorenzo.

Lorenzo made this story. His character was just...perfect. This truly was one of the sweetest (clean) romances I have read yet this year. Everything that came out of that boy's mouth was swoon worthy. I couldn't of asked for a better male protagonist.

This story was so imaginative and simply put, the kind of book I simple devour and can't get enough of.

Not only did I fall in love with the Renaissance scenery and world Harris managed to make come to life (so much so that I felt like I was there), but the characters were all fantastic.

I loved every single one of them, even the creepy Niccolo. Aunt Francesca was such a wonderful woman and everything I would imagine a woman of the Renaissance era to be like. Many times her kind nature and words to Cat made me teary eyed. Alessandra, Uncle Marco and Cip were no different. They too were such great strong secondary characters that I couldn't help but fall in love with.

I love how much Cat grew in this book and I think she was a great character too, she seemed very real and down to earth to me and I really loved that about her.

This whole story was just very well written and executed and I loved every single minute of it. In fact I found as the story started coming to a close I was reading it slower because I just didn't want it to end. I didn't want to have to say good-bye too all the characters I felt like were friends.

I know that this will be a story that I will be thinking about long after it has ended.
