Waistcoats and Weaponry (Finishing School #3)

Waistcoats and Weaponry by Gail Carriger is the third book in her Finishing School series of alternate, steampunk history set in 1850s England.

Sophronia and her friends attend Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing School for Young Ladies of Quality. A school that no only teaches them to catch a good husband, but become spies.

When one of her best friends receive an urgent notice from home then runs off, Sophronia wants to help. Given permission to leave the school for her brother's engagement ball, Sophronia and her friend Dimity are escorted off of school grounds.

When the ball is interrupted by two werewolves and a Scottish Lady, Sophronia leaps at the chance to help. What follows is an adventure of both great feats and mishaps.

Carriger has created a wonderful young adult series set in the same world as her adult Parasol Protectorate series. This is a fun, historical version of Ally Carter's Gallagher Girls series.
