Curtsies and Conspiracies by gail Carriger

This is the author Gail Carriger.
This is one of the books she wrote, it is the second in the Finishing school series.

There are five main characters out of countless characters in the book. The first one and the one the story is centered around Sophronia. There is also Sidheag, Soap, Dimity and Agatha. Sophronia is a four-teen year old girl who was invited to go to a finishing school in the late 1850's, upon her arrival she realizes that Mademoiselle Geraldine's is not an ordinary finishing school. Sidheag is daughter to the alpha of the pack of werewolves in Scotland. Sidheag thinks she doesn't belong in the school and would rather be with her pack. Soap is an lower class sooty who helps run the dirigible from down below. He like other sooties is intrigued when Sophronia first comes down into the boiler room. Dimity is a young women who would rather be shopping and have a normal life than live in the world of espionage.

The reason I like this quote is because, it is bold and in a book all about espionage it stands out from the rest because it's not about, how many flowers to kill someone.

In Curtsies and Conspiracies the main place the story takes place is on the dirigible, whether its going to classes or roaming the halls passed hours this is where the story takes place. For the most part the setting is on the dirigible but it is also in London at the end of the book.

This is Sophronias Mechanimal dog named Bumbersnoot.

My favorite part of the story is when "Madame Spetuna" comes and tells everyone's fortunes. She cheers up Agatha, makes Monique mad, and, helps Sophronia. But, the way she does all this is quite funny because, its her personality that makes it great. She is spontaneous and doesn't care about anything but the money.
