I really enjoyed this book about Lady Jane Grey. Lady Jane Grey, grand-niece of King Henry VIII, is an outstanding scholar and wants nothing more than to study with her tutor and translate the classics. But her ambitious parents push her into a role where she becomes Queen of England at the age of sixteen, although for only nine days. This story is full of intrigue and plots and is hard to put down. What's even more amazing is that the book is based on the actual history of the time. Highly recommend this.
