[Young Adult Fiction (Ages 12-17)]
[Read by Moira Quirk]
Gather your poison, steel tipped quill, and the rest of your school supplies and join Mademoiselle Geraldine's proper young killing machines in the third rousing installment of the New York Times bestselling 'Finishing School' Series by steampunk author Gail Carriger.
Class is back in session . . .
Sophronia continues her second year at finishing school in style - with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown, of course. Such a fashionable choice of weapon comes in handy when Sophronia, her best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and the charming Lord Felix Mersey stowaway on a train to return their classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. No one suspected what - or who - they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train. But when Sophronia uncovers a plot that threatens to throw all of London into chaos, she must decide where her loyalties lie, once and for all.

Gail Carriger is an award-winning and New York Times bestselling author, who writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town California life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in higher learning. Carriger then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She resides in the United States, surrounded by fantastic shoes, where she insists on tea imported from London. Her books are published in over a dozen different languages.
Gr 6 Up—Sophronia Temminick and her friends once again face adventure and mystery in Carriger's Victorian steampunk, fantasy mash-up. Sophronia is going home for a ball in honor of her brother's wedding. Her biggest concern should be practicing her etiquette and the use of her fan as a weapon. Instead, she's worried about her friend Sidheagh, whose family of werewolves are facing exile or perhaps worse. Sidheagh is determined to return home to help her family and Sophronia is just as determined to help her. Soon she and her friends, including Dimity, Soap, and Lord Felix Mersey, are on their way via hot air balloon and train. Along the way they discover a Pickleman plot and the protagonist finds herself torn between friendship and possible love. Carriger's trademark wit and humor are ever-present, and this outing in the "Finishing School" series (Little, Brown) finishes on a more emotional note as the heroine discovers where her heart lies.—Jane Jorgenson, Madison P.L., WI
