about

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?

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 flippin...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute time travel romance In my reading experience I haven’t given much thought to reading historical fiction so once this tour was open I decided to give it a try. I’m so glad I signed up because I absolutely enjoyed this book. I’ve always enjoyed stories where the main character has to travel in time to learn a lesson. This was no exception. I love the writing, and the dialogue. She sounded exactly how a teenager talks and even thinks. Rachel Harris has her nieces to thank because she acknowledges them in her thank you page. So thank you for Rachel for doing that. It brought me back to the days of my teen years minus the colloquialisms they used I still managed to understand them. I love how Cat was dropped into the simple world of Florence when the renaissance age came alive. Italy sounds gorgeous even in the 1500’s. Here women were to be wed at age sixteen and I found it hilarious with Cat’s modern thinking. Especially with her witty comebacks and modern vocabulary. Her two cousins were just so sweet and I seriously loved Cat’s love interest. He seemed like the bad boy heart breaker at first but underneath that hottie exterior is a heart of gold. I just have to say thank you Rachel for not making this your typical love triangle. It was refreshing and polished. The ending wasn’t typical and I admire you in not giving the characters exactly what they want. Although the ending was definitely a cliffhanger, now it just makes me more impatient for the next one. I’m so glad it’s not a stand-alone book and there’s going to be more of Cat!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SUPER CUTE!! My Super Sweet Sixteenth is a super cute modern/historical novel that will have you learning a bit about how the sixteenth century worked, as well some pretty awesome art history lessons! My favorite scene was (SPOILER!!!!!): When Cat meets Michelangelo!!! That was awesome!! I also loved the story of why she got her pear tattoo, because it added some great in-site to Cat's home life, and her relationship with her mother. I loved some of the quotes in the book, I found myself writing them down, both for The Flirt Squad, and also just for my own pure enjoyment! "At certain times of the month, I've considered chocolate consumption an urgent matter." "This chick is two French fries short of a Happy Meal." (CLASSIC!!) "A mini-vacay from being the third wheel in my own pseudo-family? Yes, please. Sign me up for that kind of gypsy voodoo." and last one: "If looks could kill, I'd be a barbequed pineapple." (HAHAHA love that one!!) There were quite a few more, but I want you all to enjoy them first hand when you read the book! :) I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for a nice easy relaxing getaway from the real-world. It's the perfect teen novel. It has a nice history lesson included, about art and the lifestyles available back then. And even though it had time travel, and some other unrealistic elements, Cat's personality and problems felt very realistic, and will have others be able to relate to her, from the beginning. Great story, and definitely can't wait for book two! I do have one warning: Because this book is book 1, I will warn you to expect a twist at the end, that will leave you hanging a bit!!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super, sweet!! This is the debut novel by author Rachel Harris, and I must say its an awesome start! I liked this book right off the bat. I think that the cover is so fitting and funny at the same time once you have read that book. When I read the book blurb I fell in love the storyline. It would be so awesome to travel back in time. Especially to the renaissance period (big dresses). Plus I thought that it was hilarious about how there was the My Super Sweet 16 Spoof of the MTV show. I really enjoyed the characters. I loved Cat, other then I find that she accepted the time travel too readily, where I would have been pooping my pants. Also she was worried about getting home for a small period then forgot all about home Formosa of the book. I wished that we had learned more about Cat's mom. I found Reyna to be super mysterious, and hopefully we learn more about her in the future.then there was Lorenzo (swoon). How hot is he. I loved his player reputation. But he was also sweet and romantic. I'm just sad that things between him and Cat had to end. :( Then Rachel leaves me hanging on a cliff lol with the ending!!! Can't wait for the next book!!!!
