The Theory of the Leisure Class (Modern Library Classics)
Thorstein Veblen, Alan Wolfe
The Spy Princess - Sherwood Smith Lady Lilah is only twelve years old, but she is lonely, discontented, and curious: why do the village children shout and throw things when her carriage goes by? Lilah disguises herself as an urchin boy and stumbles into becoming part of the revolution. Various shenanigans ensue.

This book just made me feel tired. I love the world (shared with the Wren, Inda, Court Duel serieses) but everything else felt two degrees removed from reality. I didn't feel anything for any of the characters, and they didn't seem believable, either. Maybe this book was just too simplistic for me to enjoy--certainly it's aimed at a *young* young adult audience.
