My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century (My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century #1)
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?
Cat is transported back in time to the sixteenth century. Artists are in their prime and the rules of society have changed. Cat is transformed into a family member from the past. Luckily she is found by friends and family. She now has to navigate a different kind of party.
My super sweet sixteenth century is a fun read with a cute message. There is some romance and some interesting characters. Cat is a sweet kind girl who learns the lesson taught. This is book one in a series of 3. The door is left open to continue the story in book 2. Book one ends as expected rather than a shock factor cliffhanger. I enjoyed this book. It was fun and interesting. The idea behind the story is creative. 4 stars out of 5.
