Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger

Sophronia is a curious young lady which is a dangerous thing in Victorian England.  Her mother wants her to settle down and become a proper lady, so she decides to send her to finishing school--Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality--to be precise.  However, this finishing academy is not at all as it appears.  Sophronia is taught to finish, but it is not exactly what her mother had in mind.  This academy is actually a school that teaches how to be a finisher in the "best families".
At first, the book was a bit slow for my taste, but it picked up enough to the point that I would like to read the next installment in the Finishing School series.  Take a look at this trailer to get a peek as to what someone else thought of the book.
