“Someday I could become a great ruler of Egypt, better than my sisters can dream of being, but I must be careful not to let them know how I feel…” thinks a young Cleopatra. Her father, Ptolemy, has chosen her as the next queen. When he is forced into exile, her two older sisters seize the throne and Cleopatra is left to fend for herself. There are spies and intrigue everywhere, and Cleopatra’s very existence is viewed as a threat to her sisters’ power. She must hide what she’s really thinking and bide her time. Will her father return from exile, and when will Cleopatra become the rightful queen of Egypt? (Grades 7 & up)
