Tangled in Time 2: The Burning Queen (Paperback)
For fans of the Royal Diaries series and of Gail Carson Levine, here is the second adventure in a middle grade time travel series from Newbery Honor-winning Kathryn Lasky!
In book 2, newly orphaned Rose finds herself time-traveling between present day and the court of the two most memorable English princesses in history.
When Princess Mary ascends the throne in sixteenth-century England, Rose is forced to leave Princess Elizabeth and serve Mary. Mary’s coronation is coming, and Rose will be put to work making elaborate gowns. But the religiously devout queen’s next plan is to begin her attack on Protestants—burning them at the stake!
Rose’s dad, master spy and goldsmith for the court, urges Rose to escape to her home century, present day Indiana, where Rose befriends a young immigrant named Marisol. Rose must protect Marisol from both middle school mean girls and the threat of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Relishing her newfound family, Rose is determined to rescue her father and best friend Franny from the dangers of Queen Mary's reign. Is she willing to risk everything to save the people closest to her?
