In an alternate England of 1851, spirited 14-year-old Sophronia is enrolled in a finishing school where, she is surprised to learn, lessons include not only the fine arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but also diversion, deceit, and espionage.
From the Publisher:
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.

New York Times bestselling author Gail Carriger makes her young adult debut with Ettiquette & Espionage, the first book in the Finishing School series.


Annotation:
This delightful young adult steampunk novel is set in the same world as Gail Carringer's adult series, the Parasol Protectorate, featuring numerous character crossovers in their younger years. Forever getting herself into scrapes by taking apart the dumbwaiter or climbing trees, 14-year-old Sophronia Temminnick is a terror to her family. Deciding it's time for Sophronia to become a well-rounded young lady, her mother sends her to Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality, located on an enormous floating dirigible. Sophronia is horrified, but to her delight soon discovers that a number of the lady-like skills she'll be acquiring alongside cooking and curtsies involve weapon handling, seduction, and defense against vampires, among other fascinating topics. Immediately picking up all the wrong kinds of friends, including an engine-room "sootie," and a tomboy with mechanical genius, Sophronia also manages to spark loathing on all sides, creating enough enemies to make her first year of school extremely adventurous. This is the first book in the Finishing School series.

Praise

"This genre-blender will introduce fans of Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls and Jennifer Lynn Barnes' The Squad to a world of mechanical maids and flying machines, while bringing a spy-school romp to readers of the weightier worlds of Cassandra Clare and Scott Westerfeld." (starred review) 01/01/2013
