My Lady Jane

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton & Jodi Meadows, 491 pages

“The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history--because sometimes history needs a little help. At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren't for Jane to worry about. Jane gets to be Queen of England. Like that could go wrong.”  This was a really fun account of Jane Grey’s possible life.  I enjoyed this alternative history.  It’s too bad this isn’t the true story since it’s much more satisfying than the truth.
