Prisoners in the Palace

by Michaela MacColl
YA MacColl M
367 p. 2010 Historical Fiction
Grade: B

When Liza's parents die, she becomes lady's maid to Queen Victoria in this lively novel, rich with historical detail and palace intrigue. Victoria is a vivid character, as is Will, the love interest, and the mysterious Inside Boy. The pacing drags in a few spots, but this is well made up for by the well-researched fun. Recommended to any fan of historical fiction!
