Reviews

"Turetsky delivers her enjoyable history lesson through the eyes of a girl who knows every major and minor fashion designer, a character sure to appeal to her target audience, as will the time-traveling theme. Appealing illustrations aid readers' imaginations... Good fun." Kirkus Reviews"
"The Time Traveling Fashionista had me under its spell from the first page. It whisked me back in time to an era of impeccable manners, glamorous people, and of course, gorgeous clothes. Debut author Bianca Turetsky has begun an amazing new series." Joanna Philbin, author of the Daughters series"

Gr 5-8-Louise Lambert, a seventh grader who is searching for an outfit to wear to her best friend's 13th birthday party, visits a vintage clothing store. Upon trying on a period dress, she is transported back to the court of Marie Antoinette at Versailles. Ironically, Louise's attorney father has just lost his job and cannot pay for her to go on the class trip to France. Getting to travel this way, Louise triumphs over her friends. There are beautiful color illustrations of fashions richly described and language typical of the time periods then and now. The chapter headings are colorful, and fonts in various hues are used throughout. This book will appeal to girls who enjoy historical fiction and fantasy. Reluctant readers will not be able to keep up with the vocabulary but will like the pictures.-Kathy Lyday, William Lenoir Middle School, Lenoir, NC (c) Copyright 2012.
