Nine Days a Queen is about the short life of Lady Jane Grey and her coming to power after Edward VI died. The books goes over all the politics that were behind pushing Jane to reign and shows how she was a pawn in others schemes for power. Ann Rinaldi was very good at portraying Jane as an actual person, which made the book a lot more interesting.

I enjoyed my reading of this book. It wasn't my favorite, but my attention was captured from beginning to end. I thought that Rinaldi's use of a first person viewpoint and also her diction make the story a lot more real. I felt connected in some ways to Lady Jane Grey. I felt I got to know who she was without feeling like I was reading a textbook.
