    Isabel is about to join a secret club called the Stravaganti. The Stravaganti are a group of high school students in London who travel back in time to a place similar to Italy. Each student has a talisman, or an object that the student must hold while sleeping to travel back in time. But this time travel isn't a mysterious vacation - each Stravaganti is called for a certain reason. This time Isabel is called to Classe, the City of Ships. The city is about to have a sea invasion by the Gate People, and the city must prepare for war. Isabel, with the help of the other Stravaganti, must help save the city before it falls into ruin. Mary Hoffman adds a great addition to the STRAVAGANZA series with CITY OF SHIPS. The story is full of twists and turns that keeps the reader enchanted throughout the entire process. This book is highly recommended for anyone who wants to go to another world...even if it is just for only one hour.
