Review: I actually won this book from a blog giveaway and it's not something I would have picked up myself. This is a light and fun read that I read through pretty quickly. I didn't really think the plot was all that surprising or exciting. I pretty much knew what was going to happen from the beginning which took away from the story a little bit. I was surprised to discover that this book is going to be the start of a series rather than a stand alone. I am interested to see where the author is going with the story, but at the same time it feels like I already know. I really liked the historical aspect of the story though. I always like books that incorporate historical events into the story line and this was no exception. I also thought Louise acted older than she really was. I would have imagined her to be in high school rather than only twelve. I think younger girls who are interested in fashion would really enjoy this book and although I thought the premise was interesting and I kept reading it wasn't one of my favorites.
