REBEL MECHANICS: ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND REVOLUTION, by Shanna Swendson

22718701

The story: When Verity Newton set out for New York City in 1888, she never expected to witness a train robbery on the way, experience the first ride of a mostly-illegal steam car that could possibly put magical carriages out of business, or get hired as a governess by one of the most powerful magical families in the British American colonies. But then again, nothing’s quite what you’d expect in this dashing alternative history featuring steampunk and swashbucklers! If you’re a sci-fi or steampunk fan, this one’s for you.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: It’s true–I’m a fan of YA steampunk. Call me a weirdo. If you liked Garth Nix’s book “Newt’s Emerald”, or are a fan of Gail Carriger’s “Finishing School” series, you’ll like this one too!
