Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School #1) by Gail Carriger

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 is the bane of her mother’s existence. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea–and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish, all right–but it’s a different kind of finishing. Mademoiselle Geraldine’s certainly trains young ladies in the finer arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but also in the other kinds of finishing: the fine arts of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries. Sophronia and her friends are going to have a rousing first year at school.

First in a four book YA series set 25 years before the Parasol Protectorate but in the same universe.

  1. Pare o carte draguta. Ar fi frumos sa apara si la noi. Coperta e destul de draguta si descrierea ma atrage. De obicei, imi plac toate cartile YA, Fantasy, SF etc.

  2. Ce tare e descrierea. Pare o carte foarte interesantă. Coperta mă sperie puțin, dar nu contează coperta, contează ce e în ea. Super.

    P.s: Mi-a fost rău, de aceea poate ai obsevat că nu am comentat la timp, dar acum sunt mai bine. Am revenit. 🙂
    O zi frumoasă-ți doresc!

  3. coperta frumoasa nu am ce comenta dar vad ca incet incet incep sa iasa la iveala carti cu si despre spioni. imi place
