Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School #1) by Gail Carriger
Sophronia feels she has more important things to do with her life than learn proper tea etiquette, how to carry on inane conversations with gentlemen or the correct posture for a sitting, but as they say, "mother knows best." Poor Sophronia is shipped off to Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality to learn the in's and out's of becoming a lady of worth, but that is not all she learns, for she soon finds herself perfecting not just her curtsy, but her tactical espionage as well. Becoming a lady is dangerous business in Gail Carriger's first young adult novel, which takes place 25 years prior to The Parasol Protectorate series. Tighten those corsets, girls, and welcome to a different kind of finishing school!
