“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.
