The book that piqued my interest in the French Revolution and history in general. I have always wanted to do some serious research into the life of Mousseline. For a long time, I considered this my favorite book, and it probably still is, just because I checked it out of the library so many times I might as well have kept it. ( )

As a Princess of France, Marie Therese Charlotte, the daughter of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, had a luxurious childhood. But life for Mousseline, as she is called by her family, changes drastically beginning in 1789. There is a growing discontent in France, and soon a new order emerges, one that has no room for the royal family. Mousseline must endure tragedy as she is imprisoned in a tower, where she is separated from her parents and siblings, and must struggle to remain strong as she endures the loss of her family and her entire way of life.

Narrated by young Marie Therese, this book was very similar to the books in the Royal Diaries series and would make a good companion read to the book about Marie Antoinette from that series. I highly recommend this book to young adults who like novels about royal figures or historical fiction in general. It gave an interesting perspective on the French Revolution from the point of view of the young princess who lost everything. ( )
