So, this is not my usual kind of book. I see big poofy dresses on the cover and I judge. But Ruby Red and its sequels are wonderfully fun. I've had to alter my quick judgement of book covers. It was the perfect guilty pleasure. There's time travel, amazing fashion from the past, green-eyed boys with long dark lashes, oh and don't forget the ghosts. But I loved this book most of all because of Gwenyth. She is a clever, feisty, and fiery 16 year-old that actually acts like a teenager. This book is surprisingly funny and just over the top enough to not take itself too seriously. And I even loved all the poofy dresses!
