An intelligently written young adult novel about the tragically short of Lady Jane Gray, who was thrust on the throne of England for nine days after the death of King Edward VI. She was undoubtedly a silly young girl, but she also didn't deserve to be beheaded. ( )

Even in this book for older children and teens, Lady Jane Grey does not fare well. Kudos to Ann Rinaldi for a well written account that appealed to this adult reader. ( )

my first historical young adult book. It was ok but you could tell it was for younger readers. ( )

This dramatic novel of historical fiction opens in 1537. Lady Jane Grey, the great-granddaughter of King Henry VII, is fifth in line for the English throne. Jane grow up in luxury, but her politically ambitious parents, (the Duke and Duchess of Suffolk) make her life miserable;they are predators who pursued wealth, power and successful people. Jane is asked to the court of King Henry VIII(married to his sixth wife, Katherine Parr);Katherine makes Jane feel welcome.

After King Henry's death, Jane is sent home to her dismal life where her mother continues to beat and berate her.Eventually, Jane goes to live with Katherine Parr and her current husband, Sir Thomas Seymore.Katherine dies in childbirth(or was she poisoned by Thomas?).When the young King Edward VI dies, England is in political chaos with different factions vying for power. Jane is declared Queen of England a role she never wanted. As Mary Tudor becomes more powerful, Jane is removed from the throne and cast into the Tower------- ( )
