    " My rating is pure nostalgia - I barely remember the plot or writing, but this book had a deep impact on my development. It's why I love Cleopatra unconditionally. The series (Royal Diaries) gave me a much broader understanding of history than an elementary school education did. "

    " I'm on the fence on this one. There isn't alot known about of Cleopatra's early years, and so this book attempts to fill in those years in a book to add to the royal diaries series. It was...OK. I don't know what more I wanted out of this book, but I wanted something I didn't get. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 7/8/2013

    " Good book. But compared to some of the other books in this series it lacks. It lacks the emotion the rest of these books had. Plus its rather violent for a childrens book. "

    " A solid novel for young girls, boys too, about middle school age. Not entirely accurate but much of the history of Cleopatra was speculation. Overall, it does a good job of keeping this princess PG. "
