The fine art of finishing others....
Fouteen-year-old Sophronia Temminnick is a great trail to her mother- her horrid curtsy is embarrassing to say the least. So her mother enrolls Sophronia is Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.
But Sophronia soon realizes the school is not exactly as her mother might have hoped. This this school, young ladies certainly learn the fine art of dance, dress, and etiquette, but they also learn to deal out death, diversion, and espionage. With the utmost politeness, of course.
It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly, It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time!
