Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—An interesting twist on the early life of Queen Victoria. Miss V. Conroy joins the household of the Duchess of Kent and the Princess Victoria at Kensington Palace. Miss V is to be Victoria's companion, but also secretly spy for Sir John Conroy, the comptroller of the household and Victoria's nemesis. Miss V learns about the Kensington System, a set of rules created by Sir John to keep Victoria safe, which the princess finds oppressive. Torn between loyalty to her father and her deep bond with Victoria; Miss V learns, over time, to balance the needs of the System with that of her friend. However, Prince Albert's arrival to Kensington Palace forces Miss V to take control of her life. The fascinating turn of events creates an engaging alternate history for fans of historical fiction and Queen Victoria. Worsley's expertise in the subject creates an intimate story accurate enough to feel plausible. However, readers unfamiliar with the British royal family may find the story overwhelming in detail, especially as Part One tends to drag. However, those intrigued by Queen Victoria or historical fiction will find this volume moving. Give to teens who are ready to graduate from the "Royal Diary" series. VERDICT A rich and moving historical fiction about one of England's best-known monarchs; recommended for fans of Carolyn Meyer and Michaela MacColl.—Kaetlyn Phillips, Yorkton, Sask.

Review

Contemporary customs and royal politics round out the narrative to provide an intriguing glimpse into the girlhood of one of the most powerful women in European history as imagined by one of Britain's most popular historians. A brilliant blend of historical fact and artistic license.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Worsley’s expertise in the subject creates an intimate story accurate enough to feel plausible...those intrigued by Queen Victoria or historical fiction will find this volume moving. Give to teens who are ready to graduate from the “Royal Diary” series. A rich and moving historical fiction about one of England’s best-known monarchs; recommended for fans of Carolyn Meyer and Michaela MacColl.
—School Library Journal

This suspenseful, entertaining tale presents a view of the young Queen Victoria as seen through the eyes of Victoria Conroy...Miss V’s seven-year tenure with Victoria is marked by suspicions, tensions, revelations, and unexpected alliances; the girls’ physical similarity to each other develops alongside their friendship, making for a deliciously surprising and satisfying ending.
—Publishers Weekly
