"The queer teen historical you didn’t know was missing from your life.”—Teen Vogue

"A stunning powerhouse of a story."—School Library Journal

"A gleeful romp through history."ALA Booklist

A young bisexual British lord embarks on an unforgettable Grand Tour of Europe with his best friend/secret crush. An 18th-century romantic adventure for the modern age written by This Monstrous Thing author Mackenzi LeeSimon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda meets the 1700s.

Henry “Monty” Montague doesn’t care that his roguish passions are far from suitable for the gentleman he was born to be. But as Monty embarks on his grand tour of Europe, his quests for pleasure and vice are in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

So Monty vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

Witty, dazzling, and intriguing at every turn, The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue is an irresistible romp that explores the undeniably fine lines between friendship and love.

Don't miss Felicity's adventures in The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, the highly anticipated sequel!

Even better than I expected...

This was a wonderful book that took me by surprise with its humor, well-paced plot, and memorable characters. I took a chance on it, and I am so glad I did. The fact that characters felt flawed and real, yet didn't irritate me, was a refreshing change from other books I have picked up recently. I recommend it to anyone who wants a quick, fun read.

My absolute FAVORITE audio book ever

Christian Coulson does such a fantastic job performing this book that I cannot express how glad I am that I decided to listen to it rather than read my physical copy. Not only is it an amazingly well written story, full of excitement and heartache and love, but Coulson brings Monty and all the other characters to life in a way that my own mental adaptation could not. It's an absolute must listen and a definite read.

Fun story BRILLIANT Narration

I enjoyed this YA story, it was a fun story, witty and cute. I am glad I finally got to it, but I am so happy I listened to the audio the narrator was brilliant he just nailed it, sometimes a bad narrator can ruin a book this is actually the first time for me the narrator improved the story. I don't think I would have enjoyed the humor as much if I was reading it.

A blend of humor, adventure, and romance

Where does The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

While not the best audiobook I've listened to, it is one of the more enjoyable. The scenarios were humorous, the characters were well realized, and the plot blended enough elements well that I will come back to this story sometime.

Which character – as performed by Christian Coulson – was your favorite?

Felicity was a real stand out. You got a very good sense of her wit, the way she was reacting to the world, and her complicated relationship with her brother.

Any additional comments?

One of the things that is wonderful about this book is its diverse cast, showing that history was as complicated (with many of the same issues) as today. Our main character is bi and lecherous and actually suffers the consequences of his action. His best-friend/love-interest is biracial and suffers from epilepsy. Felicity is wickedly intelligent at a time when intelligence in women was not necessarily prized, and is struggling with society's expectations of her. The three play off each other well, and all grow in their own way. I recommend this book.

You won’t regret listening to this masterpiece

First thing first, it was music to my ears listening to Christian Coulson narrate this book. If you are like me, you find it hard to pay attention to audiobooks; however, I found no such thing with this book. I love the cheekiness of the sister, but most of all, I love the dynamic of Percy and Monty(Henry). On a spiritual level, I feel like I would get my gang in as much trouble as Monty does. This book dives head first into topics from sexuality to abuse. Note, if you are homophobic, this is not the book for you. While listening to this book I felt immersed in Monty’s world and overall give this book an 4.75/5!!!!!

One of the Top Y.A. Books of 2017

I absolutely ADORED this book. I came across it while looking for books to buy for my classroom library, and it's safe to say I plan to buy the physical copy as soon as I can. I'll try to keep this brief, but here's what I loved about it.

The Characters: Mony, Percy, and Felicity were all unique, entertaining, clever, and an absolute pleasure to read. These are three young people that have plenty of struggles, including race, class, sexuality, mental health, physical health, and familial expectations. However, they are also three young people that are strong, compelling, and deeply loyal. The relationships between these three evolved so naturally over the course of the book, and I was so deeply attached to all of them.

The Setting: I can't comment on historical accuracy, but Mackenzi Lee did a great job of immersing me in the locations and time period. It was all the best parts of historical fiction narrated by a character who was immensely relate-able to modern audiences.

The Plot: I was actually on the edge of my seat. I was dying to know what would happen next, what stupid mistake Monty would make, what adventure they'd go on, if they'd make it. It was fast-paced, energetic, and compelling, and I was hooked.

The Humor: This book had me laughing out loud more than once. It's that funny.

The Narrator: Probably a huge part of why I loved this book so much. Christian Coulson (who played Tom Riddle in the Harry Potter movies, btw), is absolutely amazing. He added so much depth and humor, and he was absolutely entertaining to listen to. He covered a range of voices and accents well, and I would definitely listen to more by him.

In all, this was one of my favorite books of 2017, and I look forward to listening again and again. There is not a doubt in my mind that I will buy the sequel the second it hits stores.

Ein Meisterwerk

Ich liebe alles an diesem Hörbuch! Der Sprecher ist fantastisch, der Plot spannend, die Details so gut recherchiert, wie ich es selten erlebt habe, und die Beziehung zwischen Monty und Percy herzerwärmend und frustrierend zugleich. Noch nie habe ich bei einem YA-Hörbuch so oft laut lachen müssen wie bei AGGTVAV. Monty ist der Protagonist, der man manchmal vielleicht selbst gerne wäre, aber froh ist, es doch nicht zu sein, Felicity die Schwester/ Stimme der Vernunft, die man stets um sich bräuchte und Percy der Freund, den man gerne in seinem Leben hätte. Ich bin froh, zufällig über dieses Hörbuch gestolpert zu sein und kann es jedem/jeder wärmstens and Herz legen.

Mehr ein Road-Movie....

....mit Indiana-Jones Einschlüssen als eine Liebesgeschichte. Die kommt mir etwas zu kurz und bleibt irgendwie an der Oberfläche.
Eigentlich ganz nett und einfühlsam erzählt, bisweilen auch witzig und sozialkritisch. Insgesamt aber einfach nichts für mich.

Unterhaltsam und romatisch

Ich war begeistert zu Beginn, Monty's und Percy's Zuneigung war so fesselnd und frustrierend zugleich und ich liebe Monty einfach, ein Charakter wie sie mir gefallen. Ich mochte das 1/3 am liebsten, dass es danach etwas zu einem Fantasyabenteuer verkam hat mich etwas gestört. Ich war eingestellt auf Partys, Lovestories und Exzesse und nicht auf einen Abendteuertrip. Das heißt nicht dass es schlecht war.
Trotzdem eine Klasse Queer-Teen-Stroy!

simply amazing

This is the most beautiful, funny, heartwarming story I've read this year. And it's definitely worth a listen because the narrator elevates the experience quite a lot with accents and a perfect place.
