Summary

A time travel adventure.

Mattie, a girl from Los Angeles, learns how it feels to walk in the shoes of Mary Queen of Scots.

She discovers that being the pampered darling of the French court isn't all it's cracked up to be. While being kissed by a real prince has a certain appeal, and turning down the marriage proposal of a king can give a girl confidence, a young queen who does not learn to distinguish flattery from true friendship is bound to come to a tragic end.
