Girl In A Cage

by Jane Yolen


From the authors ofQueen's Own Foolcomes another historical young adult novel from a thrilling period in Scottish history-featuring an indomitable young heroine: the daughter of Robert the Bruce.

Marjorie Bruce is overjoyed when she learns that her father has proclaimed himself king of Scotland. What 11-year-old girl hasn't dreamed of being a princess? But her father's claim to the Scottish throne also means that she and all her family are now the targets of ruthless King Edward Longshanks of England. And when she is captured, Longshanks imprisons her in a cage in a small English village square. Exposed to taunts and missiles, and the scorn of the king himself, Marjorie is determined to survive. After all, she reasons, a princess is a princess, whether in a castle or a cage.
