My Review!

Truly Delightful!


Looking for a book that is fun, entertaining- a pure delight? Look no further. My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century by Rachel Harris is a wonderful book full of time traveling, loveable characters, Renaissance jargon matched with modern jargon and fantastic scenes. The true reality of Renaissance Italy time period was depicted in this story. Like marriage laws and the lack of drinking water.

Cat is a delightful main character that is easy to relate to and I am very glad to go on this journey to Renaissance Italy with her and her trusty backpack. I love feeling her adoration for art. She grows throughout the story as she learns to appreciate her life. At the beginning of the story, Cat is pretty lonely in the friendship department but throughout her trip to Renaissance Italy she lets her guard down and make a good friend with her sweet ancestor Alessandra.

Alessandra has more then my favorite name ever. She is bubbly and fun and desires to be an actor. I can relate to that; I always wanted to be an actor (maybe in college). But she cannot because she is living in a time where it is illegal for women to be actors. She was a well-developed friend for Cat and I cannot wait for her story in June. I need it!!!!! I wish I could be a friend with her and talk about theater with her. She is so passionate about it.

Lorenzo is the Italian man Cat falls in love it. While, they both are attracted to each other the moment they meet, they take their time to fall in love and start to admit they love each other. He is compassionate, a gentleman and delightful.

The plot is full of hilarious scenes. The most memorable one is when Alessandra, Cat, Cipriano (Alesaandra’s serious, yet caring brother and Lorenzo’s best friend) and Lorenzo have fun in the Italian countryside and, later, act out the tale of Snow White. My favorite character Alessandra did a swell Evil Witch. I love to be in that gorgeous field someday that was described beautifully. It was a true scene of friendship and happiness.

Overall, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century by Rachel Harris is not a story you want to miss. The next time you are feeling sad or stressed, read this book and I promise it can bring joy to your life.


Thanks for reading!

  15. Oi! Such enthusiasm from you can't go unnoticed, Rachel! I'm a huge fan of Renaissance... everything really, but especially Italy, probably due to my proximity to it and knowing the language and everything. Plus, things were so much prettier back then. I remember this book from when Mimi reviewed it, but now I'm convinced I'll read it. Thanks, hon.
