From the Publisher
Editors Note In 1539, Kitty Tylney and her best friend Cat Howard--the audacious, self-proclaimed "Queen of Misrule"--both servants to the Duchess of Norfolk, move to the court of King Henry VIII, who fancies Cat, and when Cat becomes queen, Kitty must learn to navigate the complexities and dangers of the royal court.
Annotation Court aspirations, forbidden romance, and gossipy intrigue swirl through this compelling young adult historical novel set in the mid-16th-century during Henry VIII's fifth marriage to Catherine Howard. The story of the young queen-to-be's intensely ambitious nature, and the affairs that ultimately led to her downfall, are told from the viewpoint of her quiet best friend, Kitty Tylney. The girls grew up dreaming of being at court, and their lives in the Duchess of Norfolk's maiden's chamber were filled with flirtations and secret assignations until Cat's brilliant ploy at becoming one of Anne of Cleves' ladies-in-wating. Once she's captured the king for herself, Cat brings Kitty to court. Kitty has her own romantic interests, but as Cat becomes more careless with her behavior, Kitty is desperate to protect her.
