Blog Tour: Kady Cross

As part of The {Teen} Book Scene tour for The Girl in the Steel Corset,  I have with me debut YA author Kady Cross. I'll be reviewing The Girl in the Steel Corset sometime soon, but for now I'll just leave it at the steampunk aspects are amazing. You can view the rest of the tour stops HERE.


Guest post on what kind of things we’d find if you were to have a garage sale of items from your teenage years. You can assign values to them as well. Minimum of 7 items. Max of 15.
  • Duran Duran mirror
  • Duran Duran wall hanging
  • Duran Duran sunglasses
  • Duran Duran wrist bands (Are you seeing a trend? lol)
  •  Slouchy black leather boots with heels so high I could barely walk.
  • Acid-washed jeans with fishnet patches
  • Bon Jovi t-shirt from ex-boyfriend
  • Leather biker jacket
  • white cordless phone with extending antenna
  • Leopard print mini-dress (dear God)
  • Entire Alice Cooper music library on cassette tape!

I tried to put prices on these items, but I just couldn't. I'm torn between finding them all priceless and yet worth nothing! Lol.


Thanks, Kady! And she had such a wow/bold/just WOW closet. I only wish I had the teenage guts to dress like that -- mad props.

In 1897 England, sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne has no one…except the “thing” inside her.

When a young lord tries to take advantage of Finley, she fights back. And wins. But no normal Victorian girl has a darker side that makes her capable of knocking out a full-grown man with one punch….

Only Griffin King sees the magical darkness inside her that says she’s special, says she’s one of them. The orphaned duke takes her in from the gaslit streets against the wishes of his band of misfits: Emily, who has her own special abilities and an unrequited love for Sam, who is part robot; and Jasper, an American cowboy with a shadowy secret.

Griffin’s investigating a criminal called The Machinist, the mastermind behind several recent crimes by automatons. Finley thinks she can help—and finally be a part of something, finally fit in.

But The Machinist wants to tear Griff’s little company of strays apart, and it isn’t long before trust is tested on all sides. At least Finley knows whose side she’s on—even if it seems no one believes her.
