A full-color revisit to the critically acclaimed steampunk hit!
Little Lucy Snow was supposed to attend a prestigious boarding school; however, a macabre twist of fate finds her enrolled instead at Miss Weaver’s Academy for the Scientifically Gifted and Ethically Unfettered, also known as Hollow Fields. Located on the outskirts of Nullsville and run by the insidious Engineers, the grim boarding school dedicates itself to raising the next generation of mad scientists and evil geniuses!
Classes include Live Taxidermy, Cross-Species Body Part Transplantation, and Killer Robot Construction. For her own survival, Lucy must master her lessons quickly.

The book was very good. Lucy snow was very nervous due to the pics and lines. I really liked it.
This book starts out a little slow but it finally picks up. Kate lost her mother in a car accident, and she blamed herself for the accident saying that it should have been her instead of her mother. Kate hasn't been herself for 2 years. She's been depressed, shut herself from the world, and full of regret. One day she woke to a beautiful day and went out and bought herself a new purse. When she got back home she noticed how dull her life had been. So she started going through things and getting rid of them to brighten her place up. One day she ran into a boxing coach and started working out with him. She found out that he use to coach her mother. Kate worked out and had a match coming up soon, so Rick (the coach) had her fight different people so she could learn to fight them. She won her first match and the title. She kept training cause she another match coming up, but she lost it. She lost the third one also. She didn't give up, "Never Tap Out". Rick kept throwing James at her for her to go out with him and she kept putting him off. Finally one day she did and they continued to see each other. They both noticed that Rick was being standoffish at this meet, they couldn't figure out why. They finally found out why.
Great read! Kate loses her mom and she ends up blowing off the world. She meets up with Rick who is a trainer and she starts training and wants to live her life to Never Tap Out. This book is a great read. Talks about PTSD,mourning the loss of someone you love as well as coping skills. There are some trigger points in this story.
