Publisher Comments:

The story of Mary Tudor's childhood is a classic fairy tale: A princess who is to

inherit the throne of England is separated from her mother; abused by an evil

stepmother who has enchanted her father; stripped of her title; and forced to

care for her baby stepsister, who inherits Mary's rights to the throne. Believe it

or not, it's all true.

Told in the voice of the young Mary, this novel explores the history and intrigue

of the dramatic rule of Henry VIII, his outrageous affair with and marriage to the

bewitching Anne Boleyn, and the consequences of that relationship for his

firstborn daughter. Carolyn Meyer has written a compassionate historical novel about love and loss, jealousy and fear--and a girl's struggle with forces far

beyond her control.

Mary, Bloody Mary by Carolyn Meyer was a fantastic book about a princesses life of becoming a bastard by her father's will. The princesses name is Mary Tuder and she goes through a lot of stuff with her father Henry, her mother Catherine, and her father's wife. i would recommend this book to middle schoolers and up because there are some gruesome things. This book is a great book group book because you will find yourself having a lot of questions that are easy to discuss with a group. It is a very intense book but that's what kept me reading.

Mary Bloody Mary was a great book! It was a good selection for group reading because it offered open-ended questions about subjects from history and present day. This book is an intense story about a princess called Mary, who goes from royalty to peasant, and through her suffering faces many challenges. It is a fairly accurate book on the Tudor family, King Henry the eighth, and his many wives. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about people's (especially women's) struggles in medieval times.

Mary, Bloody Mary, by Carolyn Meyer was a fantastic book. It had all the elements a book needs. It made me laugh, cry, learn more about history, and how it felt to live in that time period. I would recommend this book to girls or boys, based on the gender of the characters, but the main character is a girl. It was a book that you could read on your own or in a group, but I definitely got more out of it when reading it with a group.
In Mary, Bloody Mary, Mary Tudor is the next heir for the throne, but her father, King Henry VIII, wanted a son as his next heir. To do so, he divorces Mary's mother, Catherine of Aragon, and marries Anne Boelyn, who Mary immediately doesn't like. Anne tries to have a son, but ends up having a daughter, Elizabeth I, who takes Mary's place as Princess of Wales. When Mary becomes a servant for her step-sister, she realizes this may be her life, and she has to deal with it.
My favorite part of this book was the description it gave on the characters and the setting. It made me feel like I was there with Mary, King Henry, Catherine, Anne, and Elizabeth. If you are looking for a historical book about Mary Tudor, I would recommend Mary, Bloody Mary.
