Book Review #22
The Redheaded Princess by Ann Rinaldi
Rating: two stars (out of four)
Ann Rinaldi spins a tale of how Elizabeth I might have felt growing up and wondering if she will be queen someday.
Reading this book I had a strange sense of deja vu, like I had read another book that was remarkably similar to this book. I was slightly disappointed with this Ann Rinaldi book, I grew up reading her books and have always eagerly absorbed anything she has written, but this one was hard to get into. I didn't particularly care for the main character and didn't love the narrative. At the end I still wasn't impressed, but I didn't think it was a bad book either, so I'm not sure I'd highly recommend it.
