So for a YA book about Mary Queen of Scots, I suppose this is good. However, there is one huge problem.

Here's the problem. In movie trailer format.

Watch Nicola escape her evil uncle!

Thrill to Nicola's escape from her evil governess!

Discover Nicola's amazing ability to foresee the future!

Gasp as Nicola saves the Queen who should list to her fool!

Soundtrack availbe now, including the hit song, "The Perfect Mary Sue".

In other words, it would be a much better story if Nicola didn't seem to have 20/20 hindsight.
