Kathleen Baldwin / A School For Unusual Girls / YA Historical Fiction Romance

Thank goodness for simple stories
Told blisteringly fast
No heavy thinking required
Just Escape
Just what I needed

New to the YA collection
A School For Unusual Girls
The first Stranje House Novel
By Kathleen Baldwin

Young ladies don't do science
Young ladies don't burn barns down experimenting
Young ladies must not be "unusual"

Georgiana Fitzwilliam does science
Georgiana Fitzwilliam is "unusual"
Georgiana Fitzwilliam burned the barn down

Georgiana is taken to Miss Stranje's school
A school where "unusual" girls
Are tortured and beaten into submission
So they say

The girls Georgie meets at school
They all have their proclivities
They are all "unusual"

The Napoleonic Europe is at war with itself
Countries are teetering on the brink of destruction
The abundance of spies and counter spies, staggering

The Empire will do anything to avert invasion
Even putting young women in harms way


Music
The Decemberists
What A Terrible World, What A Beautiful World
