Post Juvenile Novel By Katheryn Lasky
So I'm reading this historical fiction "diary" of the young Marie-Antoinette.
It's part of a series called The Royal Diaries. This one is titled Marie Antoinette: Princess of Versailles.
It's by Katheryn Lasky, I've never heard of her myself...but if anyone else has, cool.
The diary is completely fake but most of the events are accurate. It mostly tells of how she was raised in Austria and her and sibling's relationships in Austria. It also tells of the many etiquette lessons she was forced to learn.

In the way back i found a family tree...starting with Francis the 1st and Marie Theresa. Sixteen children in all. wow.

So if any of you folks have read it...give opinions. =]

happy reading!! :D
