Publisher Comments:

Scholastic is proud to present the final installment of The Royal Diaries series. Drama and intrigue explode in the story of young Princess Catherine's incredible journey to greatness.

Fourteen-year-old Prussian princess Sophia finds herself entangled in her mother's efforts to arrange a marriage between Sophia and Charles-Peter, a young German duke and nephew of the Russian empress Elizabeth. As Sophia's mother moves to make the match, she and Sophia must travel from their humble home in Zerbst, Prussia, to Russia--the kingdom of Elizabeth. There, Sophia is renamed Catherine and married to Charles-Peter, but she watches helplessly as her family is torn from her, her own mother is involved in a spying ring against the empress, and all that is familiar to her disappears.

Synopsis:

In this final installment of the Royal Diaries series, drama and intrigue explode during the incredible journey of a 14-year-old Prussian princess named Sophia, who is renamed Catherine when she marries the nephew of Russian Empress Elizabeth.

This book is a very classical and dramatic book about a young 14yr old girl named Sophia. We read about interesting and devestating events happening in Sophia's life. I am a 12yrs old and I could really conect to this book deeply. I must say that who ever reads this book will emotionally feel what happens in Sophia's life. It is a very good book!
