Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger

Fourteen year old Sophronia is never doing the proper thing. Her mother hats her for it. Sophronia would rather be climbing a tree than learning correct posture. Mrs. Temminnick sends her away to Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. Little did her mother know that they don’t only learn to finish the proper way. Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality trains girls to curtsy, dance, kill without drawing attention to yourself, and deceit.

My rating: 4.5 stars

I really enjoyed this book. Sophronia didn’t just want to be a proper girl and I thought that was interesting for the time period. I thought her character was good: sarcastic, kind, scheming, girl who doesn’t really care much about what people thought of her. I thought how she talked to the people walking in the boiler room was extremely kind of her.
