As a lover of historical fiction, this book was right up my "genre", so to speak.  It is a fantasy-fiction story about real people from the royal family of England who have a magical ability to transform themselves.  It's based loosely on the lives of King Edward and his marriage to Lady Jane Grey.  It's narrated by the authors in modern day speech to gear it towards young readers today.  A great YA read for lovers of Philippa Gregory or the TV show Reign.

— From My Lady Jane, by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows

New York Times Bestseller * Publishers Weekly Best Young Adult Book of 2016 * Bustle Best Young Adult Book of 2016 * YALSA 2017 Best Fiction for Young Adults

This comical, fantastical, romantical, New York Times bestselling, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey is "an uproarious historical fantasy that's not to be missed" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind YA fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history--because sometimes history needs a little help.

At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren't for Jane to worry about. Jane gets to be Queen of England.

Like that could go wrong.
