Time Travel Made Easy
MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY by Rachel Harris. Entangled Publishing, 2012.
Cat is heading to Italy for her sixteenth birthday accompanied by her high profile father and her stepmother-to-be. The trip is a bribe of sorts; Cat needs to spend more time with her potential new parent. it is a small price to pay so that Cat can see the paintings and statues she has only seen in books. She is transfixed by the beauty of the town. But a visit with a mysterious gypsy fortune teller lands Cat back in the 16th century. Can Cat make her way back to contemporary Florence? Does she even want to? Harris gives teen girls an interesting mix of romance, art, culture, and teen angst. <485>
