For fans of The Princess Bride comes the comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey.

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.


THIS book is seriously perfect for fans of The Princess Bride. What some fans of these three authors may not realize, is that Cynthia, Brodi and Jodi all have a hidden talent. That talent is humor. When they combine that humor with their writing talent, incredible things start to happen. Seriously! I have been waiting to read this book for almost a year now. It is downright fabulous!! It's about time these three wrote a book together, because they feed off of each other so well, you don't even know which author wrote which part. 

I had the chance to briefly talk to Jodi, Brodi, when the two were in Austin, TX last year for Jodi's book release. They were getting ready to get over seas to do some research for My Lady Jane. Unfortunately I couldn't fit into one of their bags to go with them as a stowaway. Let's be honest, taking a trip with these three would be an unforgettable adventure. While they couldn't give us a lot of details about the book then, those in attendance were told that this book was definitely going to put a spin on history.... That is definitely an awesome spin they put on history. I would have loved a history class taught by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. 

If you haven't had the chance to meet Jodi, Brodi and Cynthia, you are missing out! These three are just as amazing as you'd imagine they are. They are HILARIOUS together!! Their humor definitely shines through out this book. My favorite part includes poems and a P.S, because I can imagine the fits of laughter that ensued while writing it. Also, it's funny, and fitting with all that happens in this book. Definitely READ this book! 

Here's to reading more books from these three! At this point, I don't even care what they write about it, I'd totally read it.
