Content descriptions

General Note: "When Henry's king, being queen can be a killer." -- from cover.
Summary, etc.: You'd think being the new girl in a tiny town would equal one very boring senior year. But if you're me--Annie Marck, alias Cleves--and you accidentally transform into teenage royalty by entering Lancaster High on the arm of the king himself? Life becomes the exact opposite of boring.Henry has it all: he's the jock, the genius and the brooding bad boy all in one. Which sort of explains why he's on his sixth girlfriend in two years. What it doesn't explain is why two of them--two of us--are dead. My best friend thinks it's Henry's fault, which is obviously ridiculous. My nemesis says we shouldn't talk about it, which is straight-up sketchy. But as the resident nosy new girl, I'm determined to find out what really happened to Lancaster's dead queens...ideally before history repeats itself. --from Amazon.

He's the jock, the genius and the brooding bad boy all in one. Which sort of explains why he's on his sixth girlfriend in two years. What it doesn't explain is why two of them are dead. Annie is determined to find out what really happened to Lancaster's dead queens-- ideally before history repeats itself. -- adapted from jacket

    When Annie Marck, aka Cleveland, aka Cleves, first met Henry, he was a future politician sickeningly in love with his longtime girlfriend, Lina. Fast-forward almost two years, and Henry's on girlfriend number six, uptight newspaper maven Cat Parr, and everything's been blown, somewhat literally, to hell. Girlfriend five was life-of-the-party Katie Howard; four was, well, Cleves; and three was seriously basic Jane Seymour. And number two? That was Anna Boleyn, the girl who broke up Henry and Lina. The girl everyone hates. The girl who blew up a building—and herself—when things went south. While they're with Henry, these girls are queens. But now two of them are dead. And Cleves is going to find out why. Clever nods to English history are woven throughout this teen drama. It's difficult to work sixteenth-century motivations into a contemporary story line, but Capin mostly manages to create a crafty, compelling debut. Moments where it slips into melodrama are forgivable—these are Tudors, after all. A gripping, history-based mystery that finds its footing among a group of determined, very different girls. Grades 10-12. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
