Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger

This book reminds me a lot of Harry potter the younger years, little bit of a Flavia de Luce Novel and a big chunk of Leviathan all rolled up into one. So, if you like anyone of those books you will probably like this one.

This book is about a 14 year old Sophronia Temminnick, who is constantly getting into trouble. So much so that her mother has decided to send her to a finishing school to learn some proper manners. But, what her and her mother doesn't know is that this finishing school is not only about etiquette but espionage as well! To top it off, Sophronia is the only covert recruit. Meaning everyone else that goes to this school families have been going for ages and knows exactly what the school is about. Sophronia comes into it clueless and learns alot about the world that she thought was only of myth.

I haven't read any of the authors other books, but now that I have read this one I really want to read her other series in the same world. I love how she writes. It is so witty the way she plays with words. I don't normally laugh when I read books but this one got me a couple times.

I really love this book, it was a great young adult book. And, I can't wait for the next one to come out to read more about Sophronia's adventures.
