On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly stepmother-to-be 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?
This was a great novel! It was a quick read, it only took me a couple hours to read, but even so, it really stuck with me. It reminded me a lot of Pam Mingle’s book, Kissing Shakespeare, which I’m also a fan of, and I greatly enjoyed it! Cat was a fascinating character, who you got to know quickly, yet you still saw her personality develop. Her relationship in the book was the most heartbreaking part, it was so sweet. You became very attached to the characters involved. It was one of those books that left me thinking at the end, which are always my favorites. And what an ending, it left of at a great place, it leaves you begging for more! I can’t wait for the sequel.
I give My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century 5 out of 5 stars.
