I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! My Lady Jane is an absolutely hilarious retelling of the little known, but true story in the history of England's monarchs. The story is about Lady Jane Grey, a bookish girl who found herself queen for nine days when her cousin, King Edward VI died- before her reign was ended abruptly when she was beheaded. Except this time, the authors tweaked history a little: This is the story of Jane and Edward if things had gone differently, gaining them each another chance at their own happily ever afters. Which included having to defeat the conniving members of the King's court who tried to poison the king and then so rudely stole his throne as well. Oh, also did I forget to mention that in this version of history, half of England's population can shape shift into animals, and that the other half hates them? My Lady Jane is is filled with lots of adventure, romance, and fantasy that will definitely have you laughing out loud at the narrators unique, witty, and TOTALLY TRUE (....not) rendition of this event in history.

This book and its characters were good, although the plot could be a little predictable at times. Everything, Everything is about a girl who is allergic to everything, so in order to keep her alive, she stays inside in her air filtered, perfectly monitored home, where no one is allowed in and she can never go out. This also means that she has never gotten to experience life like a regular teenage girl, but after 17 whole years of being trapped by her own sensitivity, one could only take so much loneliness before something was bound to happen. And that something is a someONE: the new and mysterious boy next door named Olly. MAJOR SPOILER ALERT (WHICH MEANS TO STOP READING IF YOU MIGHT WANT TO READ THIS BOOK)!!!!!!

are you gone yet? Oh well, if you're still here either you don't care or you've read it so...

What I found slightly frustrating was that the entire book was built upon her allergy to everything, and that was the fascinating thing that made me pick up the book in the first place. But that was made an entire lie and taken away immediately in one quick event, which meant that what I thought was the challenge that the character had to overcome was solved (very anticlimatically), just like that. Maybe that was the purpose, but I found it slightly annoying. But if you need something to read and if I didn't spoil it enough already, you should read this book. Also cos books are always better than the movie.
