Sophronia is a great trial to her poor mother. Sophronia is more
interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper
manners--and the family can only hope that company never sees her
atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to
become a proper lady. So she enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle
Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.
Sophronia soon realizes the school is not quite what her mother might
have hoped. At Mademoiselle Geraldine's, young ladies learn to
finish...everything. Certainly, they learn the fine arts of dance,
dress, and etiquette, but they also learn to deal out death, diversion,
and espionage--in the politest possible ways, of course. Sophronia and
her friends are in for a rousing first year's education.
Why I like this Cover: This cover just looks nice. It has the girl in the cool pose with the scissors, and the background with the gears in the wallpaper. This cover intrigues me, and makes me want to know more about the story. Do you like this cover? Let me know in the comments!
