This diary-format fictionalized biography of Marie Antoinette shows her life as a child. It takes the popular view of her not being very bright, meaning well but not being taught or having the natural inclination to think of others. She is portrayed as a child with little political ambition and too much vanity who stumbled her way into a bad situation at the wrong time.

As this book is meant for children, there is a fair bit of politics and the nastier parts of life at court that gets glossed over. It focuses on her relationships with family, friends and later on, subjects.

My eleven year old daughter absolutely loves The Royal Diaries series. She likes seeing which historical fiction book I'm reading and trying to read about the same person. It's an excellent series for all ages because the stories are true, real and aren't filled with all that stuff you don't want your kids reading about.
