It's one thing to learn
to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a
knife at the same time. Welcome to finishing school.
Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. Sophronia is more
interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper
etiquette at tea--and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy. Mrs.
Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. She
enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for
Young Ladies of Quality.

arts of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries.
Sophronia and her friends are going to have a rousing first year at
First in a four book YA series set 25 years before the Parasol Protectorate but in the same universe.
