As you can see by the title the story is loosely based on the well known classic Pride and Prejudice, and I thought the premise was really interesting. A modern girl plopped into Regency England! I'm going to have a conversation with the author to see if she can help me make that happen, but on to the story of Callie... Note: When you start reading let the book stand on it's own and not compare it with the classic because it isn't meant to be a retelling. It's just uses some of the plot to prope...more
I ended up finishing this book well into the night after getting so caught up in Callie's temporary world that I couldn't put it down!

Prada & Prejudice is the story of Callie Montgomery, a modern day teenager with a penchant for making a fool of herself. Callie spends the first part of a school trip to London trying to find an in to the "in crowd", but ends up taking a spill that takes her back to 1815 and lands in her the manor of a very hot duke.

At first Callie wants nothing more than to r...more
Pride and Prejudice meets The Wizard of Oz meets The Princess Diaries in this enchanting story of a young girl's journey back in time.

Callie Montgomery is an adorable, funny, bright, and klutzy character, and you will both cheer and cringe along with her as she struggles to survive in Regency era England. But some things are timeless, like cute boys and good friends, and Callie finds both during her search for a way home. She also discovers something she never had before--her own self worth.

I am a huge fan of Jane Austen and was quite interested to read "Prada and Prejudice" - a YA retelling of my favorite "Pride and Prejudice." The premise a great - a 15-year old American girl miraculously time-travels to 19th century England where after some adventures, mistakes, and misunderstandings she finds love of handsome Duke, Elizabeth-Bennet-style. What's not to like about it, right?

Yet, something is wrong. The book is an utter teenage fluff. The actions of the heroine Callie are silly t...more

Callie is on a class trip to London and she's miserable. When she overhears a group of popular girls talking about how they plan to sneak into a club that night, Callie is determined to join them. But first she needs something to make her cool - Prada heels!

Callie is a huge klutz and one step in those three-inch Prada heels sends her tumbling over - and waking up in 1815!

There Callie gets mistaken for a long-lost friend of Emil...more
Prada and Prejudice is one of those books that uses the famous Pride and Prejudice book to gain attention. It worked, at least I know it did for me. I didn't expect it to be a lot like the Austen writing, which is good because the author is clearly modern just like her character, Callie.

Callie is supposed to be smart and a complete kluts which is why, in a way, she "falls" into 1815. She is funny and Hubbard does a great job in making funny scenarios. It isn't one of the funniest books I've read...more
Prada and Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard is such a good read. I enjoyed it from the very first few pages. The story is entertaining and fast paced, and such a breath of fresh air from the angsty stuff I’ve recently been reading. The main and secondary characters are extremely likeable and their adventures and struggles captivate you from the moment you meet them.

Callie is on a high school trip to London. She’s excited about the possibilities of making friends with the popular crowd, as her once best...more
I completely adored this book. I wasn't sure how into regency England I was going to be but it turns out I'm a huge fan. It was so cute & clever and I couldn't put it down. The story is about a girl named Callie who is on a school trip to London. She's sorta clumsy and is feeling lonely and wants to get in with this particular group of girls. She thinks buying an expensive pair of Prada shoes might do the trick and when walking out of the store in her new shoes, falls and hits her head, and...more
Full Review here:

Bottom Line: Prada and Prejudice showed a lot of potential: the idea was interesting, the characters were supposedly modern and relateable, etc. However, it ended up being a major disappointment for me because of mainly one thing: Callie. I didn't like her attitude and, for the most part, wasn't able to relate to her. On the other hand, I could definitely see the connections between the originial Pride and Prejudice and this book, and I l...more
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 t...more
Prada and Prejudice is a fun, breezy read and I enjoyed it. The story moves along quickly and never falters start to finish.
Mandy Hubbard creates interesting characters. The heroine, Callie/Rebecca, is very easy to identify with. Who, as a teenager, felt they didn't fit in?
Her unexpected trip back to 1815 is filled with good intentions, mistakes and well, prejudices that she makes by not having all the information.
There is no Darcy or Elizabeth in this one so it's not a re-telling of the Auste...more
And the “Feast of Awesome” continues! 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...more

This book just wasn't for me. I could see how it would appeal to some readers, but frankly, I pretty much just chuckled through the whole book. (Not in a good way). Some things about Callie's character were charming, but I felt like ultimately she had zero growth as a character. And, I got the impression that the author did zero research on the time period that the book took place in. Mostly, I'm just happy that the book was short. I'd recommend it for a 10-12 year-old girl that likes romance, b...more
While I enjoyed the concept of Prada & Prejudice, I was not a fan of Callie. I suppose I would probably be whiny as well if I found myself in a different time period against my wishes, but I did not want to read non-stop complaining. Sometimes I wanted to shake Callie silly when she miscontrued whatever the Duke said without even getting to know him better. It drove me nuts when people do that! Probably befitting the “prejudice” aspect of the title. I don’t recall ever getting this irritated...more

This book is just amazing. Simply amazing.

I have this stupid grin on my face - blissfully stupid - and all I can say (in all my repetitive glory) is how amazing this read was.

Calli is a fifteen year old girl, off to England for the summer, alone and friendless - even though the trip is a class trip. She's all pent up on acceptance, plotting on getting accepted in the 'in crowd' through authentic buys...Namely Prada shoes.

I love how this story dives right in. There was no hold up, no senseless bl...more

I loved Mandy Hubbard's modern twist on this old classic. I think Jane Austen would be proud. It was cleaver and cute. I love sarcastic banter between two love interest and there was a lot of that. The writing was smart and interesting.

I was glad it ended the way that it did, because to be honest, I was waiting for the predictable. But, it didn't happen. I keep thinking any minute Rebecca was going to show up and foil the act. I was glad she never made an appearance.

I didn't want the book to e...more

Prada & Prejudice is hilarious from start to finish, as twenty-first century Callie (pretending to be "Rebecca") stumbles her way through meals, social settings, and dance moves back in 1815. She inflicts her modern sensibilities on her unsuspecting hosts, creating mayhem and mischief wherever she goes. But it was Callie's internal dialogue that had me giggling out loud the entire time I was reading. I couldn't put this book down, and couldn't imagine how Hubbard was going to resolve everyth...more

My Thoughts: I don't usually like too many books set back in the past. But this one was the exception! It was a light and very cute book! I really liked Callie and I instantly took a likeing to Alex, even though Callie thought he was a jerk at first. I enjoyed the way she didn't feel like she fit in with the other girls at school and felt like she needed prada's to gain her way into their world. I like the cover, its what attracted me this book when I first saw it. Overall, this book is a fun an...more

Such a cute book. I never really liked the Pride and Prejudice retelling stories for OLDER women and this was just the opposite of that.
Callie was a nice refreshing replacement for Elizabeth Bennet. And our dear Mr.Darcy is now a duke-Alex Thorton-Hawke. Yummy. Story never got boring and thank God there are no stupid characters,or the ones I hated in the original book like Mr.Collins,Lydia or that horrible mother.
I received an ARC of this book and am currently reading it. Will post my review on http://laurasreviewbookshelf.blogspot... make sure you check it out!

Predictable but funny! I like it
You know when you're at that point where you're JUST about to fall asleep, but not quite there yet?

This is what I felt whilst reading this book.

It has a brilliant and exciting storyline and a brilliant premise, but unfortunately it failed to live up to it. I'm honestly trying to understand how it has so many high ratings. Did we read the same book?

Imagine, if you will, walking down a London street in Prada heels and suddenly finding yourself smack dab in the middle of Regency England. This is what happens to our heroine Callie Montgomery when she's on a school trip one summer.

Without a friend since her BFF moved away the year prior, Callie longs for the company of the other girls in her school. Particularly a group of popular girls (you know, the ones we all love to hate). I can forgive Callie this shortcoming because she's such an adorab...more
In a few words, Prada and Prejudice is Jane Austen meets the Wizard of Oz.
I had some expectations for this book : Austen fiction, cute romances and time travel being themes I usually really enjoy, I was hoping I could enjoy this book – and I did! It was a light and charming romance that went by quickly, with many cute and funny moments and entertaining characters.

One of the book’s strenght was Callie, the main character. I loved that she wasn’t a Austen fan – or a litterature or history buff, fo...more

The Good: Prada & Predjudice was adorable!

Also, the characters had their own distinct personalities and more than once I thought, "Wow, that person reminds me of _____ from school (or someplace else)." Which is a good because characters, in my opinion, are the best part of the whole story.

One more thing, I really loved how Callie matured at the end. You could totally see it, even though the book is kind of small. I guess there are two types of people in the world; the ones that have a hear...more
When I won Prada and Prejudice in a contest a couple of months ago I was ecstatic. Since, it was a combination of three of my favs: Prada, Time Travel, and Regency England Times. Luckily, it was a sweet book that I adored.

Callie was someone I could relate to because I'm a geek in Science and Math, too, a girl who says what on my mind at any time, and a complete klutz. This all made me like Callie from the start which lead me to constantly cheer for her throughout the story. Getting to the topic...more

In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit that I own a pair of Prada boots. Not heels. Never heels. I’d instantly fall on my face like Callie, the main character, does, but I’m pretty sure doing so wouldn’t transport me back to 1815 where I’d get to live in a mansion with a hot, green-eyed duke and wear fabulous dresses. So yeah. I’ll stick with my boots (even if they are several seasons ago by now).

Since I love time travel stories, Prada, and Jane Austen, this was a slam dunk premise for...more

The Gist
Callie Montgomery's school trip to England was supposed to fix everything. Her lack of popularity. Her lack of self-confidence. But why should things overseas be any different from back home? She's just as unpopular and clumsy in England as she was before, except now she's forced to hang out with three of the most popular girls in the school - they're her travel buddies. When Callie realizes that it'll take more than a few not-so-cozy days together to make them friends forever, she decid...more
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, Ca...more

“Shouldn't you have today off? Isn't it Sunday?"
"I've a half day off ever' three days. I'll be out temorra afte'noon."
I snort. "A half day?"
God, that's ridiculous. She doesn't even get a single full day off? What is Alex, some kind of slave driver? Jeez.”
“What do you mean, ruined?"
From the way Emily swallows slowly, you'd think we were talking about smoking crack. "Compromised. another man."
"Oh!" I say, too loudly. "You mean, if the girl's not a virgin, the guy won't marry her?"
She nods, her eyes wide, as if being a non-virgin is akin to being an ax-murder.”
