Area author’s book doing well
“Prada and Prejudice,” written by the Enumclaw’s Mandy Hubbard, hit store shelves in June and has been picking up positive reviews and some high profile readers.
Hubbard e-mailed to say Time Magazine shows young actress Abigail Breslin reading a copy of the Razorbill publication.
The teen-targeted book is about a 15-year-old girl who thinks she’ll be cool if she wears the right shoes – a pair of Prada pumps – and clothes. On a trip to London, she hits her head and wakes up in the year 1815 and a whole lot more.
Hubbard’s second young adult novel with Razorbill books is expected in 2010, along with “Driven,” a novella for Harlequin’s NASCAR series. She has also written articles which have appeared in Discovery Girls magazine and The Writer.
