  About The Book

Louise Lambert's best friend's thirteenth birthday party is fast approaching so the most important question on her mind is, of course, "what am I going to wear?!" Just in time, she receives yet another invitation to the mysterious traveling vintage fashion sale. As Louise slips on a lavish antique gown, she finds herself back in time once again... and speaking French?

Swept up in the glory of palace life, fancy parties, and enormous hair as a member of the iconic Marie Antoinette's court, Louise finds that this time she's not alone in her time-travels, and between cute commoner boys and trips to Paris for custom-made couture, Louise must keep her head on straight as she races against the clock to get home.

Professional fashion illustrator Sandra Suy is on board once again to fill the pages of this second Time-Traveling Fashionista novel with eye-catching full-color illustrations of the era's sumptuous styles.

"Turetsky delivers her enjoyable history lesson through the eyes of a girl who knows every major and minor fashion designer, a character sure to appeal to her target audience, as will the time-traveling theme. Appealing illustrations aid readers' imaginations... Good fun." Kirkus Reviews

Praise for The Time-Traveling Fashionista On Board the Titanic:
"Turetsky's debut breezily incorporates past and current pop culture references; with a spunky main character and breathless descriptions of glamorous clothing, it's entertaining wish fulfillment for those as fashion-focused as Louise." PW
