is the first captivating installment in the Stranje House series for young adults by award-winning author Kathleen Baldwin. #1 New York Times
bestselling author Meg Cabot calls this romantic Regency adventure “completely original and totally engrossing.”
Its 1814. Napoleon is exiled on Elba. Europe is in shambles. Britain is at war on four fronts. And Stranje House, a School for Unusual Girls, has become one of Regency Englands dark little secrets. The daughters of the beau monde who dont fit high societys constrictive mold are banished to Stranje House to be reformed into marriageable young ladies. Or so their parents think. In truth, Headmistress Emma Stranje, the original unusual girl, has plans for the young ladies—plans that entangle the girls in the dangerous world of spies, diplomacy, and war.
After accidentally setting her fathers stables on fire while performing a scientific experiment, Miss Georgiana Fitzwilliam is sent to Stranje House. But Georgie has no intention of being turned into a simpering, pudding-headed, marriageable miss. She plans to escape as soon as possible—until she meets Lord Sebastian Wyatt. Thrust together in a desperate mission to invent a new invisible ink for the English war effort, Georgie and Sebastian must find a way to work together without losing their heads—or their hearts….
A School for Unusual Girls is a great next read for fans of Gail Carrigers Finishing School series and Robin LaFevers His Fair Assassin series.
