Ambitious Edition: Prada & Prejudice by Mandy Hubbard

Title: Prada & Prejudice
Author: Mandy Hubbard
ISBN: 1595142606
Release Date: June 11, 2009

The Usual Questions:

Is this the first in a series?
No, this is a standalone.

What is the basic concept?
Fifteen-year-old Callie buys a pair of real Prada pumps to impress the cool crowd on a school trip to London. Goodbye, Callie the clumsy geek-girl, hello popularity! But before she knows what’s hit her, Callie wobbles, trips, conks her head… and wakes up in the year 1815!

Is the cover art favorable?
Yes. It's very cute. It makes me think the book will be a fun light read.

What are some of the author's other works?
Mandy has some other works in progress, but it doesn't look like any others have been published yet. Check out Mandy's other literary works.

Any other notes?
Yes! The correspondence I've had with Mandy was great. She was concise and sweet and you all know how much I value concise!

Mandy has a blog, and the tagline says, "A professional writer is an amatuer who didn't quit. Don't quit." I heart people who don't quit! Over at her blog, there's a Prada & Prejudice Timeline that anyone interested in the book should check out. My favorite entry:
March 3, 2006: I change the name to Prada and Prejudice after an IM bot tells me it sucks. An IM bot is a preprogramed IM thing you can talk to on aol, kind of like a magic 8 ball but with more answers. Obviously, it knows more about the universe than I do.
