A School for Unusual Girls
I don't know anything about the Regency Era, but usually learn a lot of history through historical fiction. Unfortunately, this series seems to also be speculative fiction along the lines of, "What would have happened if Napolean came back into power?" It had me wondering how much of the history was true, so I didn't learn much.
This is the first in a series, so it starts with a newcomer to the school. Unfortunately, the other girls at the school seem far more interesting than Georgie. Add to that the slightly racist portrayal of Madame Cho, the school's disciplinarian, and I won't be sticking around to find out about the other students.
