Review

Praise for THE LADY’S GUIDE TO PETTICOATS AND PIRACY: ★ “[Lee] develops a world rich in historical detail, crafts a plot wild with unexpected turns, and explores complex topics like colonization and identity. An empowering and energetic adventure that celebrates friendship between women.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

★“An incredible, must-have follow-up full of old characters and new, blood and guts, and a delightful barrage of sarcasm.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

★ “This action-driven adventure is a joy.” (ALA Booklist (starred review))

“A beautifully brilliant story about feminism, female friendship, privilege, sexism in the 17th century, and doing all you can to fulfill your passion and dreams.” (Buzzfeed)

“A feminist feast that challenges societal norms and forgoes all romance, which is unconventional, albeit refreshing, in young adult literature.”

(BookPage)

“[A] strong feminist credo.” (The Horn Book)

The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy is fun while still being thoughtful, feminist, and an ode to female friendship.” (Bustle)

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.” (ALA Booklist (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.” (Kirkus Reviews (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.” (School Library Journal (starred review))
