Curtsies and Conspiracies (Finishing School #2)

Curtsies and Conspiracies by Gail Carriger is the second book in her Finishing School series set in an alternate history England and focused around Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality - a school that trains spies.

Sophronia's story continues in the middle of her first year of finishing at Geraldine's. She and her friends will be joined by one teacher and a few boys from Bunson and Lacroix's Boys Polytechnique - a school training boys to be future evil leaders. And the school, housed in a large dirigible will be floating to London for the testing of a new technology.

Sophronia will try to find out who is behind a plot to control the new prototype that will change travel forever - a plot that includes a kidnapping of her best friend to use for leverage.

Carriger has created a delightful, fun series set in an interesting version of 1851. Filled with gadgets, political intrigue and great characters, this series is a must read. It is also on the NYC Summer Reading List for Young Adults.
