    " Nine Days a Queen was one of my favorite books in sixth grade, an ingenious creation that made me wonder what I would do if I were in Jane's situations throughout the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 2/14/2014

    " This was a good book i read it very quickly around 2 days. It was very well written it was engaging sometimes i got confused with who everybody was but altogether a very nice book "

    " The historical novel Nine Days A Queen, by Ann Rinaldi, is the story of Lady Jane Gray and how she was the queen of England for only nine days. It talks about how Jane was living a hard life at home, being beaten by her parents, and then one day she gets called into court, and her life is changed as she is viciously pawned off and used to gain prestige. I really enjoyed reading this book. I was entertained and enthralled, and at the same time, I was learning about English history. "

    " This is another I recommend to historical/fiction readers! You won't be able to put it down. Based on a true story. Anne Rinaldi is an avid writer! "

    " I found the author's writing style very dull, but the story was just interesting enough to keep me slogging on through to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 1/30/2014

    " Intersting book. Very quick read since it is on a teen level. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendy | 1/15/2014

    " This was a short historical fiction on the life of Jane Grey, who was only queen of England nine days before being imprisoned and eventually beheaded. This story follows closely the store told in the Young Elizabeth book I read last year. The author is more compassionate to Jane Grey and portrays her as a victim rather than a conniver. It was interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scarlett Sims | 1/13/2014

    " I like historical fiction, especially when it's about royalty. I had never read a book by Ann Rinaldi before, although I'd heard HORRIBLE things about My Heart is on the Ground. This book was exciting and while I don't know enough about the period to know how historically accurate it was, she did give a bibliography at the end with suggestions for further reading. I didn't know too much about Jane Grey but I want to find out more now. The book was mainly a children's book, but there is a little bit of implied sexuality (It's royalty, how could there not be?) so probably older elementary-middle school age depending on the maturity of the child. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/9/2014

    " This was a good book. Had some confusing moments, but I still enjoyed reading it. The book seemed over too soon! It was definitely worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hannah Nicole | 1/1/2014

    " Intriguing. I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa | 11/25/2013

    " I read this with my daughter and it is very well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/24/2013

    " I appreciate this book for its character development and the immediate immersion of the reader in the setting. I wish there could have been more details. It was also very unusual because I don't think I've ever read a book where the sole narrator dies. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessie | 9/9/2013

    " Quick and easy historical fiction based in the King Henry 8th time period. This book shows the twisted minds of those in power combined with the innocence of a child. Great book, couldn't put it down. Easily one of my favorite books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 8/25/2013

    " Ann Rinaldi is one of my favorite YA authors of historical fiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 7/18/2013

    " A tiny historical fiction, very informative quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 6/1/2013

    " This is clearly a book for children with simple language and not much depth in the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Logan | 9/28/2012

    " hate the book, made me cry at the end, we are reading it in mrs.cooper's ag reading class! "
