Book Review: The Bad Queen # 16

The Bad Queen: Rules and Instructions for Marie-Antoinette (Young Royals)
Author: Carolyn Meyer
Title: The Bad Queen: Rules and Instructions for Marie Antoinette
Genre: Historical Fiction
Publish Date: April 12, 2010
Publisher: Harcourt Children’s Books
Book Blurb: In this latest Young Royals tale, Meyer portrays the teenage Austrian princess “dealt” to France in marriage by her mother—might there be a sympathetic figure behind the persona of the woman mainly known for her extravagance and gruesome end? With the gorgeous clothes, sumptuous surroundings, and seemingly limitless wealth, Marie becomes a prisoner of royal pomp and circumstance with no concept of governance or political savvy as France descends into a revolutionary bloodbath. Historical-fiction fans will be swept up in the cruel fates of the monarchs and political forces, particularly as the drama escalates into horror.
