Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"I had to hide my little journal, the reason is that I do not wish anyone to know that it exists. Really, I must have a place to pour out my curious thoughts and sort through them. I never get to be truly alone," writes Princess Victoria, niece of King George IV of England. Always surrounded by attendants and her overprotective mother, Victoria is expected to behave perfectly, to be seen and not heard. Though only 12, Victoria knows her world is changing forever. Less than six years later, Victoria becomes Queen of England.

Review:

"Victoria's character is engaging, the villains detestable; an epilogue tells how she became queen at eighteen, dashing Sir Conway's hopes of power." Hornbook Guide to Children

Review:

"Although photographs, a family tree, and some notes are included, it is impossible to tell what in this fictional diary is based on historical fact and what is made up." Booklist

Review:

"Fans of the series will be delighted." School Library Journal
