Mary Stuart was just five years old when she was sent to France to be raised alongside her future husband. But when the frail young king dies, eighteen-year-old Mary is stripped of her title as Queen of France and set adrift in the harsh world, alone.Determined to reign over what is rightfully hers, Mary returns to Scotland. Hoping that a husband will help her secure the coveted English throne, she marries again, but the love and security she longs for elude her. Instead, the fiery young queen finds herself embroiled in a murder scandal that could cost her the crown. And her attempts to bargain with her formidable "sister queen," Elizabeth I of England, could cost her her very life.

Review quote

"Through a fresh, modern voice, Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, is presented as a fascinating, headstrong, multidimensional woman. . . . The scheming and rivalries of Scotland are covered in such a way that the novel makes complicated history accessible and intriguing."--SLJ"Mary is a relatable, sympathetic protagonist, and though she has many responsibilities and expectations the average teen reader doesn't, she still deals with plenty of common adolescent problems: parental expectations, crushes and the confusion they can lead to, a changing dynamic between herself and her childhood friends."--teenreads.comã Praise for Carolyn Meyer's Young Royals books: "High drama . . . irresistible."--Booklist"Riveting."--Publishers Weekly"Masterful."--VOYA"Captivating."--SLJ Praise for Carolyn Meyer's Young Royals books: "High drama . . . irresistible."--"Booklist""Riveting."--"Publishers Weekly""Masterful."--"VOYA""Captivating."--"SLJ "
