Description

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.show more

Back cover copy

EDWARD is the King of England. He's also dying, which is inconvenient, as he's only sixteen and he'd much rather be planning for his first kiss than considering who will inherit his crown. . . . JANE is Edward's cousin, and far more interested in books than in romance. Unfortunately for Jane, Edward has arranged to marry her off to secure the line of succession. And there's something a little odd about her intended . . . GIFFORD is a horse. That is, he's an Eoian (eth-y-un, for the uninitiated). Every day at dawn he becomes a noble chestnut steed--but then he wakes at dusk with a mouthful of hay. It's all very undignified. THE PLOT THICKENS as Edward, Jane, and G are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy. With the fate of the kingdom at stake, our heroes will have to engage in some conspiring of their own. But can they pull off their plan before it's off with their heads? The comical, fantastical, romantical, entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey but not really Lady Jane Grey, sixteen, is about to be married to a total stranger--and caught up in an insidious plot to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But that's the least of Jane's problems. She's about to become Queen of England. Like that could go wrong. "The Tudors meets Monty Python. Prepare to laugh and gasp and clutch your pearls."--Tahereh Mafi, New York Times bestselling author of the Shatter Me series "History, humor, and unexpected magic come together in this marvelous story."--Jessica Day George, New York Times bestselling author of Silver in the Bloodshow more
