When you see this book and it says that its a diary from a girl in the years 1583-1586 you think that this girl is going to be really old fashioned and you can't really relate to this girl well truth is she is really like modern girls.I am 10 and i really loved this book.

It's the 1580s. Queen Elizabeth's enemies plot to kill her and place Mary Queen of Scots on the throne. While Kitty's father works on secret projects for Elizabeth, her brother is mixing with suspicious characters. As Mary's supporters edge closer by the minute, Kitty fears the worst - that they'll all be thrown into the Tower.
