What starts as a well-intentioned vacation quickly descends into chaos. Main character Monty has a knack for getting himself into trouble, and his itinerary of opera and banquets quickly gets forgotten. The real adventure involves a bit more excitement, like pirates and thieves and romance that Monty’s dad wouldn’t approve of but we totally do.
So, in honor of GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE officially being on-sale now, we thought we’d put together a little test of vice (and virtue) of our own. Would you get caught up in a sea-sprawling European manhunt? Or would you have stayed behind with Mr. Lockwood at the palace? Scroll down and take our quiz to see what percentage of vice and virtue you are!

Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.
But as Monty embarks on his Grand Tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is 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.
Still, it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he 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 that spans across Europe, 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.
Well, what’d you get? Would you tear up the town with Monty, or clean up his mess with Felicity? Let us know in the comments below!
