Alessandra D’Angeli is in need of an adventure. Tired of her sixteenth-century life in Italy and homesick for her time-traveling cousin, Cat, who visited her for a magical week and dazzled her with tales of the future, Alessandra is lost. Until the stars hear her plea. One mystical spell later, Alessandra appears on Cat’s Beverly Hills doorstep five hundred years in the future. Surrounded by confusing gadgets, scary transportation, and scandalous clothing, Less is hesitant to live the life of a twenty-first century teen…until she meets the infuriating—and infuriatingly handsome—surfer Austin Michaels. Austin challenges everything she believes in…and introduces her to a world filled with possibility. With the clock ticking, Less knows she must live every moment of her modern life while she still can. But how will she return to the drab life of her past when the future is what holds everything she’s come to love?

I missed out on My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, but I was able to pick this book up and read through without being confused.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading all about Alessandra, Cat, Austin and the rest of the characters. I think the book is well written with lots of romance, witty lines and true devotion. I am definitely going to be picking up My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century so I can read all about Cat's story!

I really enjoyed the romance between Alessandra and Austin. Getting to know both of these characters was easy and I really feel like Ms. Harris wrote them flawlessly!

Overall a cute, quirky romance that was an easy, fast read. I loved it!

This is the perfect companion novel to My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century! A sweet romance that is sure to appeal to younger readers and teens too.

What worked for me had to be the fun, adorable spin on the time travel premise. Too often these stories tend to be darker or very confusing to follow. Not the case here! Alessandra D’Angeli, 'Less', Cat’s sixteen-century Italian ancestor, comes to modern day Beverly Hills. Seeing our world through Less’s eyes is hilarious at times(her reaction to a thong) to downright endearing. Less starts off as a shy time-traveler bringing the customs and expectations with her. Then she meets Austin which causes literal sparks to ignite.

Less’s experiences in our time period give strength to this story. I loved seeing everything through her eyes. There’s a quirky charm to this story which had me giggling in more than a few places. Austin is the classical ‘full of himself jerk’ who later shows his true colors. I liked how we see his vulnerabilities and not just his surfer dude persona. Less and Austin’s relationship starts off with a dare and builds into something much more.

This is mostly Less’s story though we do find out more about her modern day cousin Cat and what happens to her own romantic tale after leaving Lozeno behind.

Adorable new sixteen century heroine’s journey through modern day Beverly Hills filled with humor, friendship, and even romance. Everything that teens I know want in a YA story!
