Kat, Incorrigible (Reprint)
DescriptionNow in paperback, the first installment of a Regency era trilogy starring a feisty heroine with a taste for adventure. Twelve-year-old Katherine Ann Stephenson has just discovered that she's inherited her late mother's magical talents, and despite Stepmama's stern objections, she's determined to learn how to use them. But with her eldest sister Elissa's intended fiancé, the sinister Sir Neville, showing a dangerous interest in Kat's magical potential; her other sister, Angeline, wreaking romantic havoc with her own witchcraft; and a highwayman lurking in the forest, Kat's reckless heroism will be tested to the utmost. If she can learn to control her new powers, will Kat be able to rescue her family and win her sisters their true loves? In this charming blend of Jane Austen-era culture, magical whimsy, and rollicking adventure, readers will find a true friend in the refreshingly unladylike Kat Stephenson.

About the Author
"Regency romance and fantasy adventure all in one, this is a satisfying read and a promising beginning to a trilogy that is sure to be popular with middle school girls."
"Romance, humor and magic mark this brisk debut novel, the first of a trilogy set in an alternative Regency England.... Burgis's command of the conventions of the genre is evident in characterization and plot, putting every element in place for a genteel romp.... Luckily, Kat is on hand to interfere with everyone's plans. Enjoyable mayhem ensues."
"Set in nineteenth-century England, this is a delightful story about a courageous, spirited, loveable girl who refuses to conform to society's expectations. There's plenty of humor, romance, and mystery as Kat cuts off her hair, disguises herself as a boy, and turns the lives of those around her upside down."
