Review: Etiquette and Espionage

Etiquette & Espionage
Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a DARLING book! Think Harry Potter’s Hermione at a girl’s school. So. Much. Fun!

Sophronia and her friend Dimity meet on their way to finishing school where they are going to learn much more than they anticipated. Dimity already knows a little about what to expect, but Sohponia, a covert recruit, as they say, is completely in the dark.

Age Appriate for: middle grades – high school

Sub-genre: mighty girls/girl power/steampunk

Characters’ Ages: 14-18

Language: None

Sexual Content/Heavy Content: none; boys are discussed, but no romance ensues.

Violent Content: the girls are learning to be intelligencers, they carry small weapons, and are learning to fight. There is little in the way of violence, per se.
I think the level is low enough that it is appropriate for even 5th and 6th graders.

Time Period: 19th Century England; lots of petticoats to wear, jewels to envy, and good manners to practice.

Notes to Readers: Have an early english dictionary on hand. Some of the steampunk words tripped me up, so I had to look up their early definitions. It made for an engaging and entertaining read, though.

One word to describe the book: FUN!

You can purchase this book in our Book Store (—–> up top on the sidebar) or at your local bookstore! Keep Reading Up with the Joneses //
