About the Author

Mackenzi Lee holds a BA in history and an MFA from Simmons College in writing for children and young adults. She loves Diet Coke, sweater weather, and Star Wars. On a perfect day, she can be found enjoying all three. She currently lives in Boston, where she works as a bookseller and almost never reanimates corpses. Almost.

Reviews

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." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"An incredible, must-have follow-up full of old characters and new, blood and guts, and a delightful barrage of sarcasm." -- School Library Journal (starred review)
"This action-driven adventure is a joy." -- ALA Booklist (starred review)
"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." -- Buzzfeed
"A feminist feast that challenges societal norms and forgoes all romance, which is unconventional, albeit refreshing, in young adult literature." -- BookPage
"[A] strong feminist credo." -- The Horn Book
"The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy is fun while still being thoughtful, feminist, and an ode to female friendship." -- Bustle
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." -- ALA Booklist (starred review)
"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." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"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." -- School Library Journal (starred review)
"A gloriously swashbuckling affair." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Mackenzi Lee (This Monstrous Thing) combines her knowledge of European history with a contemporary, comic sensibility to create an over-the-top romantic adventure complete with cliff-hanging chapter endings and sometimes outrageous narration. Monty is a licentious, flawed and engaging 18th-century hero. -- Shelf Awareness (starred review)
"Monty is pitch-perfect as a yearning, self-destructive, oblivious jerk of a hero who inspires equal parts sympathy, frustration, and adoration from reader. A genre tribute, satire, and exemplar in one." -- The Horn Book
"Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue is the queer teen historical you didn't know was missing from your life." -- Teen Vogue
"A rollicking ride that also turns a keen eye to issues like class, racism, homosexuality, and identity." -- Brightly
