Diana Ma’s HER REBEL HIGHNESS Gets A Starred Review!

We’re thrilled to announce that Diana Ma’s YA historical romance, HER REBEL HIGHNESS, has received a starred review from School Library Journal!


HER REBEL HIGHNESS is the second book in Diana Ma’s DAUGHTERS OF THE DYNASTY series with Abrams. Equal parts swoon-worthy romance and crucial Chinese history, it’s an epic story of love and betrayal set against the backdrop of the Tiananmen Square protests.


In their glowing starred review, School Library Journal calls HER REBEL HIGHNESS a “page-turning novel” and “an endearing love story that takes place in the context of a dynamic political lesson.” They also go on to say this is “A compelling novel that covers an important time in Chinese history while also giving readers an enjoyable teen romance. Recommended for all libraries.”


Pick up your copy of HER REBEL HIGHNESS today from Abrams, Bookshop.org, Barnes & Noble, Target, or your local independent bookstore. You can also get the audiobook from Penguin Random House! And be sure to visit Diana’s website and Twitter for more about HER REBEL HIGHNESS and her other books.
