by Gail Carriger


Sophronia is rather unpopular around her home. Instead of being interested in being a proper lady, she's more interested in taking things apart to see how they work, using the dumb waiter to spy on people, and generally anything that doesn't require a curtsy. When her mother sends her to Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality, Sophronia is terrified that she's going to spend the year in torturous etiquette classes. Instead, she finds that the Academy teaches more than just manners... it teaches things she's quite sure Mumsy would not like her to learn at all! A really fun steampunk story with vampiric etiquette teachers and exploding wicker chickens.

Fans of Carriger's Parasol Protectorate will love this series.
