Queen's Own Fool

As ya'll know, I'm a fool for historical fiction, and I'm kind of on a YA FIC kick.
Also, I love Jane Yolen. 
The Devil's Arithmetic? My favorite Passover book.
Briar Rose? So creative! I love the mix of fairy tale with the Holocaust.
I used to read a lot of Holocaust novels.
Turns out, I've actually read this book before. I still enjoyed it though.
I wouldn't really recommend it to a kid who struggles with reading, but it's a great  book for a nerd like me. Mary Queen of Scots? She's a total powerhouse. I've read non-fiction about her! So yeah, Queen's Own Fool was great. Not my favorite Yolen, but still a good read!
