Quotes & Awards

  • “Josephine Bailey reads with a haughty confidence. Her well-enunciated accent sounds royal as she mixes palace intrigue with preteen concerns of school and friends.”

  • “Elizabeth, the daughter of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn, shares her day-to-day life from the ages of 11 to 14.…History is conveyed, accurately for the most part, in an entertaining fashion.

    " The book is the fictional diary of Queen Elizabeth 1 before she was queen, when she was still a teenager. The book was thoroughly enjoyable, and I liked it. It was a good read, and at the end had a few historical notes as well as pictures of Queen Elizabeth in different stages of her life, with captions stating what age she was, etc, which was fun to read. I liked it. "
