This book was perhaps my favorite of the Royal Diaries series growing up (though many of the others were also quite good and I definitely recommend them as well). This rendition of Elizabeth I's childhood is absolutely riveting and highly entertaining.

Follow the 11-to-12-year-old daughter of Henry VIII, the daughter of Anne Boleyn, as she navigates the treacherous waters of her father's court in the final years of his life. It is in her handling of many of these situations that we see the beginnings of the canny political operator that she will show herself to be as an adult. We see some of the friendships and relationships that will stay with her through much of her life as well.

An amazing read for a tween or teen!

Brilliantly written and a deeply engrossing book about Queen Elizabeth I's sentiments as a 12 year old girl. An enjoyable read!

The tone and mood of this novel holds echoes of the dark, dreary Medieval Ages and it is the perfect read for a rainy day. I don't know how Lasky did it, but there is something different in the undertones of this book that I can't put my finger on. It shows the real side of being English royalty in a time of sexism, questionable medical practices, monarchy, and plots of treason.

This is a wonderful story to read if you are doing a project on Elizabeth I or if you are looking for a good book to read. You may think that being a princess is wonderful but for Elizabeth I it was horrable. Her father(the king)beheaded Elizabeth's mother. Elizabeth also was scared of her older sister.

I think that you will find this book very exciting.
