I thought this book was funny, enjoyable and realistic. You'll be certain to get lost in Flora's story because this is such a good book!

Synopsis

When Flora Fox's parents send their daughter off to boarding school, they have no idea that the train will take her back to 1935. On the journey Flora has a strange dream. She wakes up without her laptop or her phone, wearing a hideous uniform with ridiculous bloomers underneath. She is a new girl at St Winifred's, where the rules are mad, the food horrible, and the hairiness of the teachers unbelievable. Her 21st century manners will not be tolerated at strict St Win's - how will she ever survive and find her way back to her own time? But there is a special reason why Flora has been summoned to the past. It involves the tempestuous girl who becomes her best friend, and will one day become her grandmother..."Beswitched" is a wonderfully funny, classic story from a popular and very talented children's author.

Kate Saunders' writing has left a lasting impression on me and makes me see writing about time-travelling in a whole new league.
