Pilgrims Don't Wear Pink

You can read the Goodreads summary here.
Libby's best friend Dev may not understand why Libby wants to spend her summer interning at a living history museum, but Libby does: she loves history and she wants to immerse herself in it. But she'll soon learn that immersing herself in history and teaching a summer camp for girls at the same time, isn't exactly what she expected. Especially when Cam walks into town and starts to sweep her off her feet...
I loved this book from the get-go! I love history and living history museums, so that aspect of the plot was a huge draw for me. The plot got interesting fast when Libby learns cooking in 1791 is kind of, well, gross. Then when Cam enters the scene, the book becomes a great YA romance, with a great ending and lessons learned! A very cute story overall.
Of course, the little girls in the summer camp were just so cute, too. I think they were my favorite part of the book. Very eager to learn the domestic arts, but also very interested in their teacher's personal life, just as all little girls are. I found them, and all the characters really, to be pretty realistic.
If you like history, even a little bit, I highly recommend this book. It had it all for me - a great YA storyline, history, fashion, and a great soundtrack. The book won't be released until mid-May, but I think you should definitely check it out.
