A Mad Wicked Folly – Sharon Biggs Waller (2015 YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults) Miss Victoria Darling appears to have everything a wealthy young lady at the top of 1909 London society could want—except the one thing she craves above all else: to become an artist. After posing nude for her clandestine drawing class in Paris, Vicky gets shipped back to England in disgrace where her parent frantically work to get her engaged to a wealthy and appropriate young man. Meanwhile, Vicky refuses to give up and soon find herself very preoccupied with her forbidden application to the Royal College of Art, her inconvenient feelings for a young policeman, and her growing involvement with the women’s suffrage movement.
