The Lovereading4Kids comment
March 2012 Book of the Month. How can feisty Sophia take her revenge on her father for forcing her into a life of high society in Bath? Outwardly, Sophie conforms by attending balls and masques. But, at night, she leads quite another life risking all by changing her appearance and turning to crime. It is a dangerous and difficult path to tread and following Sophie’s clever handing of the situations makes a thrilling costume drama.

'Stand and Deliver! Hand over your valuables if you value your life!'
Sophia's duty is clear. Look pretty, behave well, and find a husband as soon as possible.
Set in Georgian England, fifteen-year-old Sophia is trapped by the limitations of living in a man's world. Forced by her father to give up everything she loves, Sophia is ordered to make a new life in Bath. By day Sophia is trapped in the social whirl of balls and masquerades. By night, she secretly swaps her ball gowns for breeches, and turns to highway robbery to get her revenge ...When one man begins to take a keen interest in her, Sophia must keep her distance, or risk unmasking her secret life.
