Product description

Review

★ “[Lee] develops a world rich in historical detail, crafts a plot wild with unexpected turns, and explores complex topics like colonization and identity. An empowering and energetic adventure that celebrates friendship between women.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

★“An incredible, must-have follow-up full of old characters and new, blood and guts, and a delightful barrage of sarcasm.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

★ “This action-driven adventure is a joy.” (ALA Booklist (starred review))

“A beautifully brilliant story about feminism, female friendship, privilege, sexism in the 17th century, and doing all you can to fulfill your passion and dreams.” (Buzzfeed)

“A feminist feast that challenges societal norms and forgoes all romance, which is unconventional, albeit refreshing, in young adult literature.” (BookPage)

“[A] strong feminist credo.” (The Horn Book)

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy is fun while still being thoughtful, feminist, and an ode to female friendship.” (Bustle)

PRAISE FOR THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE: ★ “Tongue-in-cheek, wildly entertaining, and anachronistic in only the most delightful ways, this is a gleeful romp through history. Monty is a hero worthy of Oscar Wilde.” (Booklist (starred review))

★ “The book’s exquisite, bygone meter and vernacular sit comfortably on a contemporary shelf. And the friction of racism, tyrannical entitled politicians, and misguided disapproval of homosexuality also have a relevance rooted in current culture’s xeno- and homophobia. Austen, Wilde, and Indiana Jones converge in this deliciously anachronistic bonbon.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

★ “This is a witty, romantic, and exceedingly smart look at discovering one’s place in the world. A stunning powerhouse of a story for every collection.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

From the Back Cover

Felicity Montague is through with pretending she prefers society parties to books about bonesetting—or that she’s not smarter than most people she knows, or that she cares about anything more than her dream of becoming a doctor.

A year after an accidentally whirlwind tour of Europe, which she spent evading highwaymen and pirates with her brother Monty, Felicity has returned to England with two goals in mind—avoid the marriage proposal of Callum Doyle, a lovestruck suitor from Edinburgh, and enroll in medical school. However, her intellect and passion will never be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who see men as the sole guardians of science.

But then a small window of hope opens. Dr. Alexander Platt, an eccentric physician who Felicity idolizes, is looking for research assistants, and Felicity is sure that someone as forward-thinking as her hero would be willing to take her on. However, Platt is in Germany, preparing to wed Felicity’s estranged childhood friend, Johanna. Not only is Felicity reluctant to open old wounds, but she also has no money to make the trip.

Luckily, a mysterious young woman is willing to pay Felicity’s way, so long as she’s allowed to travel with Felicity disguised as her maid. In spite of her suspicions, Felicity agrees, but once the girl’s true motives are revealed, Felicity becomes part of a perilous quest that leads them from the German countryside to the promenades of Zurich to secrets lurking beneath the Atlantic.
