really liked it
bookshelves: children-s, for-school, historical-fiction

I like historical fiction, especially when it's about royalty. I had never read a book by Ann Rinaldi before, although I'd heard HORRIBLE things about My Heart is on the Ground. This book was exciting and while I don't know enough about the period to know how historically accurate it was, she did give a bibliography at the end with suggestions for further reading. I didn't know too much about Jane Grey but I want to find out more now. The book was mainly a children's book, but there is a little bit of implied sexuality (It's royalty, how could there not be?) so probably older elementary-middle school age depending on the maturity of the child.
