Curtsies & Conspiracies Now Available!

The second Finishing School book, Curtsies & Conspiracies, launches today! Squee!

Amazon chose it as one of their teen books of the month!
Kirkus chose it as a Best Bet for Science Fiction & Fantasy Books for November 2013

I'm super excited about this book and I hope you all enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I feel like I really found my stride, and so did Sophronia and her cohorts. There are also boys in this one. Yes, boys. I know, the girls and Mademoiselle Geraldine's were shocked and titillated too.

Mademoiselle Geraldine is a little upset, I must say.

You don't have to take my word for it, here are some early reviews for Curtsies & Conspiracies.
