The Gentleman’s Guide to Getting Lucky
Author(s): Mackenzi Lee
“The queer teen historical you didn’t know was missing from your life.” — Teen Vogue, on The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
In this funny and frothy novella that picks up where the New York Times bestselling The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue leaves off, freshly minted couple Monty and Percy fumble through their first time together.
Monty’s epic grand tour may be over, but now that he and Percy are finally a couple, he realizes there is something more nerve-wracking than being chased across Europe: getting together with the person you love.
Will the romantic allure of Santorini make his first time with Percy magical, or will all the anticipation and build-up completely spoil the mood?
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.”
★“An incredible, must-have follow-up full of old characters and new, blood and guts, and a delightful barrage of sarcasm.”
★ “This action-driven adventure is a joy.”
“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.”
“A feminist feast that challenges societal norms and forgoes all romance, which is unconventional, albeit refreshing, in young adult literature.”
“[A] strong feminist credo.”
“The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy is fun while still being thoughtful, feminist, and an ode to female friendship.”
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.”
★ “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.”
★ “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.”
