Cate of the Lost Colony is well-written teen historical fiction. It has an engaging story and is well-researched. Cate's story gives a good view of life in Queen Elizabeth I's court and describes life as a new colonist.

The characters were interesting, but a little weak in their development. Cate begins as a lady in Queen Elizabeth's court. When she falls out of favor with the Queen, she is banished to the new colony of Virginia. With her new experience, Cate learns the value of avoiding judgment and being accepting of those who are different. Klein does a good job combining historical characters with fictional ones and makes a good hypothesis for what might have happened to the lost colony of Roanoke.
