  About The Book

When Louise Lambert receives a mysterious invitation to a traveling vintage fashion sale in the mail, her normal life in suburban Connecticut is magically transformed into a time-traveling adventure.

After a brief encounter with two witchy salesladies and donning an evening gown that once belonged to a beautiful silent film star, Louise suddenly finds herself onboard a luxurious cruise ship in 1912. As Alice Baxter, the silent film star, Louise enjoys her access to an extensive closet of gorgeous vintage gowns and begins to get a feel for the challenges and the glamour of life during this decadent era. Until she realizes that she's not just on any ship- she's on the Titanic!

Will Louise be able to save herself and change the course of history, or are she and her film star alter ego destined to go down with a sinking ship in the most infamous sea disaster of the 20th century?

With detailed, full-color fashion illustrations throughout by professional fashion illustrator, Sandra Suy, The Time-Traveling Fashionista series capitalizes on the booming interest and fashion expertise of pre-teen girls today.

  Praise

Praise for The Time-Traveling Fashionista:
"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

"Using vintage fashion as the trigger, Turetsky ably combines historical fiction and time travel with descriptions of clothing prettied up by Suy's full-color illustrations of elegant gowns.... the promise of more books to come in a series will please fans." Booklist
