Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger (click on the title to preview the book)
It’s one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It’s quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time, welcome to finishing school. Fourteen-year-old Sophronia Temminnick is a great trial to her poor mother-her atrocious curtsy is an embarrassment to the pfamily name. So Mrs. Temminnick enrolls her daughter in Mademoiselle Geraldine’s FinishingAcademy for Young Ladies of Quality. But Sophronia soon realizes the school is not quite what her mother might have hoped. At Mademoiselle Geraldine’s, young ladies certainly learn the fine arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but they also learn to deal out death, diversion, and espionage-in the politest possible ways, of course. Sophronia and her friends are in for a rousing first year’s education. Set in the same world as the Parasol Protectorate, this YA series debut is filled with all the same saucy adventure and droll humor Gail Carriger’s legions of fans have come to adore.
