A magic spell has spun Flora into the past. She's mysteriously swapped lives with a schoolgirl in 1935! No iPod? No cell phone? No hair products? How will she survive?
Now Flora's a new girl at St. Winifred's, where she has to speak French at breakfast, wear hideous baggy bloomers, and sleep in a freezing dormitory.
But lots of adventures in the past are amazing even if they are not forever. How will she find her way back to the 21st century?
KATE SAUNDERS has written lots of books for adults and children. She lives in London with her son and her three cats.
Starred Review, Booklist, October 15, 2011:
"...this absorbing novel, first published in Great Britain in 2010, features a dimensional, delightful protagonist, whose personality and growth ring true...Along with the entertaining magical elements, the universal themes of self-discovery and looking beyond appearances combine into a wholly engaging and enjoyable read."
