MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH BLOG TOUR


MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH BLOG TOUR

On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly stepmother and well-meaning father. So even though Cat knows the family’s trip to Florence, Italy, is a peace offering, she embraces the magical city and all it offers. But when her curiosity leads her to an unusual gypsy tent, she exits . . . right into Renaissance Firenze. 

Thrust into the sixteenth century armed with only a backpack full of contraband future items, Cat joins up with her ancestors, the sweet Alessandra and protective Cipriano, and soon falls for the gorgeous aspiring artist Lorenzo. But when the much-older Niccolo starts sniffing around, Cat realizes that an unwanted birthday party is nothing compared to an unwanted suitor full of creeptastic amore. 

Can she find her way back to modern times before her Italian adventure turns into an Italian forever?

Author Spotlight
As a teen, Rachel Harris threw raging parties that shook her parents’ walls and created embarrassing fodder for future YA novels.
As an adult, she reads and writes obsessively, rehashes said embarrassing fodder, and dreams up characters who become her own grown up version of imaginary friends.
When she's not typing furiously or flipping pages in an enthralling romance, you can find her homeschooling her two beautiful princesses, hanging out with her amazing husband, or taking a hot bubble bath…next to a pile of chocolate.
MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY is her debut novel.  She did have her own fantabulous Sweet Sixteen in high school. Sadly, it wasn't televised.
My Thoughts
  I love a good time travel book and Rachel Harris really knew how to transport me back in time! I actually went to Italy last year and one of my stops was Florence. It felt so nice to step back into that city through a book and have a character experience the awe I felt. Then she is lucky enough to go back in time!
Cat Crawford is on her way to Florence because her dad is getting married to a much younger woman and this is Cat's peace prize for going along with it. Cat is the daughter of a film director and a scandalous actress, so her life is not the norm but I really like how she handles herself. She is so excited to be in a city where no one recognizes her and she can let her guard down on the trip. She will be able to soak up the culture and art of Florence. Especially the art.
 On her first day in Florence she goes into a gypsy fortune teller's tent and get whisked away to the sixteenth century. There she meets up with her ancestors and falls in love with the handsome artist Lorenzo but there are obstacles in the way of them being together (never mind that Cat is from the future)! Cat really grows as a character and I love the journey she takes. 
I am looking forward to book two, at least I am assuming there is a book two because of the ending! I will be first in line to read it! A great book for those who love time travel and a really fun books!
