Loved it !

I am an older reader and bought this book, not knowing it was a book for children and young adults. However, I read it with great enjoyment-- easy to read, entertaining, even for someone in my age bracket. I've since bought other books in the "My Story" series, and all the ones I've read have been very good. Even older people sometimes can enjoy reading simpler, more straight-forward children's books, and I certainly enjoyed this one.

My favorite book from the My Story series.

This book is one in the My Story series. The books in this series are fictional diaries of young girls living during different periods of British, Scottish, and Irish history. Elinor Valjean begins her diary in 1525, when she is eleven. As the daughter of a lady-in-waiting to Queen Catherine of England, she has grown up at court. Over the next few years, Elinor describes her daily life living among royalty, and how she eventually becomes a lady-in-waiting to Anne Boleyn. Elinor and her family sympathize with Queen Catherine because of their ties to her. But Anne Boleyn is determined to be queen, and King Henry VIII is determined to divorce Catherine, because she has failed to provide him with a son and is now too old to have any more children. But as Elinor's life becomes happy, as she grows up, falls in love, marries, and has children, Anne's only becomes worse, as she ends up disappointing Henry by failing to provide a living son. This is my favorite book from the My Story series, and I highly recommend it to readers who are interested in the Tudor era or who enjoy historical fiction in diary form. I loved the setting, the historical detail was fascination, and Elinor was a likeable narrator.
