The Unladylike Adventures of Kat Stephenson

Publisher: Templar

A 21st-century take on Jane Austen's world, entertainingly viewed through the eyes of a 12-year-old heroine who discovers she has inherited her mother's magical abilities.

Kat is the youngest in the family, and her mother's death after Kat's birth gives her a feeling of inferiority and rebelliousness which makes her very independent, and encourages her to experiment with her own magic, and to restore her mother's reputation.

Burgis successfully creates a Regency atmosphere, combines 18th and 21st century language, and produces an excellent adventure story, filled with humour.

A unique take on family and relationships with strong appeal for confident girl readers.
