Review: Etiquette & Espionage
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE BOOK:
This is a really simply written book— except there’s about three mentions of “undergarments”, so that’s why I’m sure it’s been categorised as YA.
But really; this is perfect for the tween girl. Not me, an older reader of YA (“older”— pffft, I’m 18, but I consider that ‘old’ since I am no longer the average age of YA fiction).
YOU CAN EASILY TELL THIS IS WRITTEN BY AN AMERICAN. Gail Carriger includes awkward, unused phrases of British people, such as “talyho!”
I kept reading the protag’s name as schizophrenia lol.
Anyways that sentence is more interesting than any of the characters in this book.
Imagine Hogwarts, with spies.
Now take away the beauty of Hogwarts.
Okay I’m too bored to finish this review. It wasn’t for me, but I highly suggest it to 10-12 year old girls.
