Description


Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate that her daughter, who is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette, become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality. Little do they know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn a different kind of finishing. Mademoiselle Geraldine's trains her young proteges in how to finish others: the fine art of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries.

Staff Picks

This book remains one of my all-time favorite books ever. This story is told in such a strikingly intimate way, you are pulled right into the time of the Trojan war, into a time of heroes and legends, and most of all, you're privy to a love story so epic and deep that it will hold your heart forever. What's more, Madeline Miller's writing is just the most pleasurable thing to read; she writes in such a way that feels as if she wrote it just for your eyes to read. You feel the wind in your hair on warm beaches, your heels kicking up sand; you feel the sticky sap of figs as you bit into their sweetness; you feel the cool spring light filtered through tall forest trees; and most of all, you see the world through the eyes and heart of young Patroclus, as he discovers the mighty hero Achilles and begins their stunning journey together, and their love story for the ages.
