What if a beautiful dress could take you back in time?
Fashion-obsessed Louise Lambert knows everything about the late-great clothing designers and anything vintage. When she receives a mysterious invitation to the Traveling Fashionista Vintage Sale, Louise is so there!
Marla and Glenda, two eerie salesladies, convince Louise to don a glittering evening gown, and poof! she finds herself transported onboard a luxurious cruise ship in 1912. Louise relishes the glamorous life and decadent closets of this opulent era until she realizes- she's on the Titanic!
Will Louise be able to save herself and change the course of history, or is she destined to go down with the ship?
Seventh-grader Louise Lambert obsessed with vintage clothing, but with only a few vintage outfits to her name longs for excitement in her life. It arrives in the form of a mysterious invitation to the Traveling Fashionista Vintage Sale. When Louise finds the perfect dress there with the help of some eccentric saleswomen, she discovers that the "traveling" part of the sale is literal: upon trying on the dress, Louise passes out and awakens in the body of Alice Baxter (the dress's former owner), a silent film star and currently a passenger on the Titanic. At first Louise enjoys her luxurious new life, not to mention wardrobe, but when she realizes she is on the ill-fated ship, she is up against the clock to either change the course of history or return home before it's too late. First in a planned series, 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. Suy contributes full-color illustrations, not seen by PW. Ages 12 up.
