OLDER FICTION
Lee, Mackenzi

The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy

(2) YA Monty's sister Felicity (The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue) dreams of becoming a doctor, but she's been rejected by every hospital board (this being eighteenth-century Britain). In a last-ditch effort, she hitches a ride to the Continent with pirates to plead her case with her medical idol. Amid occasional fantasy elements, Lee keenly observes unsavory realities of the times while naturally incorporating casual diversity and a strong feminist credo.
