What to do with a book that makes you laugh at the top hobokem the page and want to hurl it into the nearest wall at the bottom? Chrissie, said Hoboken Hipster, finds herself a photographic assignment in a Medieval re-enactment faire.
Somewhere along the way her colleague goes missing, she meets a strange gypsy who sets her a quest, and she ends up traveling back in time to 11 th century England. There, the first person she meets is Robin of Locksley. The story is told in first person present tense — something that took a bit of getting used to — but actually works to heighten the comedic effect.

This is never a plot device that works for me, but I was able to let it go. Robin does kiss Chrissie as a boy, and the way he handles it is well done. So some updating is required.
I had my linguistically-minded friend look up these two most obvious slips. Though in use longer than I had suspected, neither are appropriate in Sherwood Forest. Finally, there are two major characterization flaws that dropped this book to a C- for me.
When Chrissie meets Robin, he and his merry men are hiding out in the forest. Robin only really seems to get into it once the notoriety comes in. Well … apparently Chrissie gave Robin his golden heart, which makes her feelings seem really quite shallow.
The second problem lies in the use of historical characters. This sort of loose end drives me crazy. This book had me laughing out loud in public transportation with tears running down my face. Unfortunately, I wanted to throw it out the window in the next instant.
