From the description, you can tell that this book sounds really corny (which it is), but it was still cute. In the beginning, Callie was pretty annoying. She kept whining about wanting to be friends with the popular girls, who seemed shallow and really vain And when she first ends up in 1815, she is in complete denial, thinking that the people are play-acting in costumes. Since Callie has no sense of the manners that were required of people during this time, some of the things she did were pretty funny, while at the same time making me cringe. Coincidentally, I was also reading the real Pride and Prejudice at the same time, so it was neat to see the comparisons (Obviously, the duke is supposed to be Mr. Darcy). By the end, though, Callie learns that popularity isn't important, it's about just being yourself. Looking back, I can't tell how that relates to going back in time, but hey, it's still a good message. I also really liked the ending; it had a bit of a twist. Overall, a cute and humorous book for fans of any genre.
7 out of 10.
