Description-

  • In this highly anticipated sequel to the New York Times bestselling The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, Felicity Montague must use all her womanly wits and wiles to achieve her dreams of becoming a doctor—even if she has to scheme her way across Europe to do it. A must-have for fans of Mackenzi Lee's extraordinary and Stonewall Honor-winning novel.

    A year after an accidentally whirlwind grand tour with her brother Monty, Felicity Montague has returned to England with two goals in mind—avoid the marriage proposal of a lovestruck suitor from Edinburgh and enroll in medical school. However, her intellect and passion will never be enough in the eyes of the administrators, who see men as the sole guardians of science.

    But then a window of opportunity opens—a doctor she idolizes is marrying an old friend of hers in Germany. Felicity believes if she could meet this man he could change her future, but she has no money of her own to make the trip. Luckily, a mysterious young woman is willing to pay Felicity's way, so long as she's allowed to travel with Felicity disguised as her maid.

    In spite of her suspicions, Felicity agrees, but once the girl's true motives are revealed, Felicity becomes part of a perilous quest that leads them from the German countryside to the promenades of Zurich to secrets lurking beneath the Atlantic.

    Felicity Montague fights to take up space in a world that demands she remain invisible.Barred from study at hospitals and universities because of her sex, Felicity chases her dreams of medical study from London all the way to Stuttgart, where her idol, Alexander Platt, an expert in preventative medicine, plans to marry before embarking on an expedition. Without any money of her own since she ran away from home, white English girl Felicity must rely on Sim, an Algerian Muslim woman with connections to piracy and secret motives. To make matters worse, Platt's fiancee, Johanna Hoffman, also white, used to be Felicity's best friend until falling out over their changing interests. As in The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (2017), Stonewall Honor recipient Lee (Bygone Badass Broads: 52 Forgotten Women Who Changed the World, 2018, etc.) develops a world rich in historical detail, crafts a plot wild with unexpected turns, and explores complex topics like colonization and identity. Felicity's brother, Monty, and his boyfriend, Percy, play smaller roles in this volume; the story focuses on the relationships between Felicity, Sim, and Johanna as the three women fight their own battles for respect and recognition within societal systems built to suppress them. Traveling alongside Sim and Johanna challenges Felicity to acknowledge the flaws of her not-like-other-girls self-image and realize that strength comes in more than one form.An empowering and energetic adventure that celebrates friendship between women. (author's note) (Historical fiction. 14-18)

    Gr 9 Up-A year after the events of The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, Felicity Montague is wallowing in self-pity and boredom. Countless visits and petitions to Edinburgh's hospitals and universities to obtain an education have proved fruitless. Felicity runs away to London to meet up with Monty and Percy, where she discovers that her idol, the famed Dr. Alexander Platt, is looking for research assistants-and is much more likely to hire a woman, given his own unorthodox path to his medical license. The only problem in meeting him is that he is currently in Germany about to marry her ex-best friend from childhood, Johanna Hoffman. Luckily, a secretive and mysterious young woman named Sim is willing to pay Felicity's way. Things don't go according to plan, and Felicity, Johanna, and Sim are drawn into a continent-spanning chase that leads them to a remote island on the Atlantic and a secret beyond their wildest dreams. Felicity's sarcastic wit is entertaining, and she grows as she comes to terms with the realization that there is more than one way to be taken seriously, and what it means to be a strong woman. Gender inequality during the 18th-century is thrown into sharper focus, and readers can feel Felicity's many frustrations emanate from the page. Lee also touches on different definitions of femininity, and hints that Felicity may be asexual. These timely themes are set against another thrilling, swashbuckling romp across Europe and Africa. The author's extensive notes serve to shed some light on the time period and her inspirations for the characters. VERDICT An incredible, must-have follow-up full of old characters and new, blood and guts, and a delightful barrage of sarcasm.-Tyler Hixson, Brooklyn Public Library

  • School Library Journal (starred review) ★"An incredible, must-have follow-up full of old characters and new, blood and guts, and a delightful barrage of sarcasm."
  • ALA Booklist (starred review) "This action-driven adventure is a joy."
  • Booklist (starred review) "The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy is fun while still being thoughtful, feminist, and an ode to female friendship."
  • Kirkus Reviews (starred review) PRAISE FOR THE GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE: ★ "Tongue-in-cheek, wildly entertaining, and anachronistic in only the most delightful ways, this is a gleeful romp through history. Monty is a hero worthy of Oscar Wilde."
  • School Library Journal (starred review) ★ "The book's exquisite, bygone meter and vernacular sit comfortably on a contemporary shelf. And the friction of racism, tyrannical entitled politicians, and misguided disapproval of homosexuality also have a relevance rooted in current culture's xeno- and homophobia. Austen, Wilde, and Indiana Jones converge in this deliciously anachronistic bonbon."
  • Publishers Weekly (starred review) ★ "This is a witty, romantic, and exceedingly smart look at discovering one's place in the world. A stunning powerhouse of a story for every collection."
  • Shelf Awareness (starred review) ★ "A gloriously swashbuckling affair."
  • The Horn Book ★Mackenzi Lee (This Monstrous Thing) combines her knowledge of European history with a contemporary, comic sensibility to create an over-the-top romantic adventure complete with cliff-hanging chapter endings and sometimes outrageous narration. Monty is a licentious, flawed and engaging 18th-century hero.
  • Teen Vogue (“Best Queer Books to Celebrate Pride 2017”) "Monty is pitch-perfect as a yearning, self-destructive, oblivious jerk of a hero who inspires equal parts sympathy, frustration, and adoration from reader. A genre tribute, satire, and exemplar in one."
  • Heidi Heilig, author of The Girl From Everywhere "A rollicking ride that also turns a keen eye to issues like class, racism, homosexuality, and identity."
  • Stacey Lee, author of The Secret of a Heart Note and Under a Painted Sky "Careening from fete to fiasco on a Grand Tour of 18th century Europe, THE GENTLEMEN'S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE is a dizzying, dazzling, and roguishly romantic romp. This book makes me want to unrequite my own love so I can requite him all over again."
  • Dahlia Adler, founder of LGBTQ Reads and author of Under the Lights "Don't read this book unless you like adventure, hijinks, and forbidden romance, and if you do, then read it twice."
  • Rachel Hawkins, author of the Rebel Belle series "An outrageously fun, witty, fascinating, and romantic adventure, starring a memorable trio I'd happily travel with for ages. Lee is a definite force in diverse historical YA."
  • Claire Legrand, author of the Winterspell series "The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue is a Grand Tour all its own. Hilarious and romantic, adventurous and scandalous, Monty's adventures are just as delightful as Monty himself. I adored this book!"
  • Erin Bowman, author of Vengeance Road "Sweet, smart, and powerful, Gentleman's Guide tackles timely topics that will resonate profoundly with readers—all wrapped up in a truly epic road trip. Prepare to laugh, gasp, swoon, and cheer."
  • Audible Editor’s Pick "A delightful romp of a road-trip through eighteenth century Europe, packed with witty dialog, razor-sharp pacing, and the perfect amount of swoon. You should abso-bloody-lutely read this book."
