My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century: Release Day Spotlight!


On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly soon-to-be 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?
One word I’d use to describe this book? Flawless! My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century was brilliantly written. To die for characters and swoon worthy romance, combined with the authors compulsively readable voice makes this a must read. This book had be cracking up one page and swooning the next. Cat is the heroine everyone is hoping for when you crack open the cover to a YA book. She’s funny and interesting and I couldn’t get enough. And Lorenzo…sigh. If only he were real and I was a teen again. I loved him! The romance in this book was perfectly done. The characters and emotions felt very genuine. Time travel, a hot Italian boy and beautifully crafted story? This book is everything I look for and more in a YA book. I recommend this one to…well, everyone! If you are looking for a fun, engaging read that will sweep you off of your feet and take you to another world, this is the book for you! And in case my review didn't say it all, I adored this book!
