Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 7-10–Fifteen-year-old Callie's class trip to England is, like most things in her life, remarkably unremarkable. Ever since she was overheard making a derogatory remark about cheerleaders by one of the most popular girls in school, Callie has been permanently on the D list. To her misery and embarrassment, she has been ditched by her class-trip buddy, leaving her stranded at their London hotel. A scheme to join fellow classmates on a surreptitious trip to a hot club leads to her tripping spectacularly over her new Prada heels. Upon waking from her blackout, Callie discovers that she has been transported to Regency England and is now the long-lost American friend of Emily, a well-to-do teenager. True to her character, she makes a series of faux pas with the titled gentry, earning her the disapproval of a matriarch and a dashing 19-year-old duke. Although her adjustment to an 1815 lifestyle is rough, she begins to appreciate her friendship with Emily and her surprising budding romance with the duke. Callie's perpetual awkwardness, chronic foot-in-mouth syndrome, spiritedness, and openness make her genuinely likable. Endearingly funny episodes involving a Heart and Soul pianoforte duet and a CPR rescue in front of an astonished crowd are contrasted with Callie's determination to rescue Emily from an engagement to a suitor 30 years her senior. Although some aspects of the book and character traits are stock and predictable, this is a fun and charming read, sure to be popular with fans of humor and romance.–Jennifer Schultz, Fauquier County Public Library, Warrenton, VA

On her class trip, clumsy outcast Callie buys a pair of swank Prada shoes in order to fit in. She ends up tripping over her feet and landing in Austen-era England. There, a case of mistaken identity gets her taken in by the Duke of Harksbury, and then the fun begins as she navigates this new world, all the while falling for the hot Duke.

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.

And the "Feast of Awesome" continues! Total Deb pun there! If I had describe Prada and Prejudice in one word it would be: cute! It was such a cute read! I'd even say that middle grade readers would enjoy this one.

I love the whole regency period and often wish I'd magically land in the era myself, so this novel was right up my alley. Callie was a very 21st century character so having her wake up in the 1800's was rather comical! I would have liked to gotten to know her 21st century character a little bit more, but I couldn't definitely see a change in her, from the brief time I'd seen her in her "own world."

The writing flowed nicely and was very charming. P&P was a very quick read for me, due to a combination of it being only 270 pages and from being very entertaining. This is a must read for Jane Austen Junkies!

This is a light, fun young adult twist on Pride and Prejudice. In it, Callie is a 15-year-old sophomore on a class trip to England during summer vacation. Callie is not enjoying her trip as much as she hoped, as the "A-list" girls are ignoring her and she is left pretty much to herself. A known klutz, Callie falls and bumps her head outside of a Prada shoe store, where she has just purchased a pair of 3-inch heels (hoping to impress the A-listers). When Callie regains her senses, she somehow has been transported to 1815 Regency England. After a fortuitous mistake causes her to be mixed up with an American guest in a duke's home, Callie takes residence and struggles to integrate into 1815 English customs. The restrictions and expectations of women during that time period are particularly hard for Callie to swallow and Callie becomes embroiled in an effort to save a young woman she befriends from an unwanted engagement. During this time, Callie also gets to know the young duke, Alex. At first, Callie thinks he is an arrogant, controlling jerk. Over time, she realizes that first impressions cannot always be trusted, and the duke may be much more than he at first appears to be.

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.

Prada and Prejudice is my favorite Jane Austen book. I loved the sparks that flew when the slightly impoverished Elizabeth Bennet meets the haughty and rich Mr. Darcy. Their growing love and acceptance of each other never fails to move me.

Prada and Prejudice sounded just about perfect to me, an awkward girl is tossed back in time and clashes with an arrogant young Duke. Callie, aged fifteen, is shy. She's a bookworm and doesn't have any friends among the other girls on her once-in-a-lifetime trip to England. But then she overhears the other girls saying they are going to sneak out and go to a nightclub and she decides to join them, it's her last chance to impress them and try to have a good time on her trip.

She heads out to buy something snappy for her night out and BAM, she's in the 18th century!

All of the story, up to this point, was fantastic. I loved Callie's determination in the face of the snotty rich girls.

But there were some bumps in the story.

No explanation is given for her time travel.

It seemed a bit too convenient that she found a place to stay and everyone was super accepting of her odd ways and didn't seem too scandalized by her bizarro modern clothing.

The rules of conduct, being alone with a man you are not married to or closely related to weren't followed. Ditto for the wandering around improperly dressed.

The strange incident at the end of the ball didn't add to the story in any way and even the characters moved on from what would have been considered a miracle for that time period.

Her angry clashes with people about being treated the way 18th century women are treated. Callie was def a feminist.

What can I say beyond 'oh my god why couldn't this happen to me?' I'll try to however. The title of course eludes to that most famous work, Pride and Prejudice, but unlike a lot of the Austen-esque sequels and re-invents coming out this year it has very little to do with those characters and more to do with the setting, attitudes and way of life.

Callie is a hoot. Once she acclimates to the situation she doesn't sit idly by and let things happen around her like she did in present day. She helps to build Emily's confidence, tramples all over Alex's highhanded treatment of women and attempts to make things perfect. Of course that old saying 'The road to hell is paved in good intentions...' rears its ugly head, but its not easy remembering that in 1815 women were little more then chattel to dress prettily and sell to the highest bidder most of the time (especially in higher echelons of society).

From a historical angle the book works well to explain the nuances of society back then without laboring on about them. Since Callie is impersonating an American to begin with its naturally assumed she knows next to nothing about how to behave in public (or private) anyhow. Some things about society never changes despite the superficial trappings and in many ways I think that, that lesson is the most important to remember.

My favorite part of the book is when Callie and Alex are discussing his lands (about halfway through the book or so). Soon as he mentions fox-hunting Callie is horrified. Even after she explains she knows what is entailed in fox-hunting he still acts like she has no understanding of it. Callie, thankfully, doesn't let him think she's okay with it and verbally smacks him down. Fox hunting indeed (barbaric!).
