Marie Antoinette: Princess of Versailles (book review)

Marie Antoinette: Princess of Versailles, by Kathryn Lasky, is the fascinating story of this young monarch before she became the Queen of France. Lasky tells her story in a diary format, which is very interesting and helps to connect the reader to the main character. We  get an inside scoop on this princess's sheltered life and watch as she makes decisions that will eventually lead to her gruesome death as the Queen. The series this book is part of, Royal Diaries, is an offshoot of Dear America, so readers who enjoy these kinds of books will love this one. I'd also recommend it to anyone interested in historical fiction, because it was a great book, informative yet very entertaining.
