Gemma Doyle has been shipped off from her home in India to attend a "proper boarding school" after the suicide of her mother in 1895. At Spence, her initial reception from the other girls is chilly at best, and she begins to have visions which more often than not come true. When she lets three girls in on her visions and they begin to explore her powers, she finds out more than she wants to. Libba Bray's debut novel is captivating, well-written, and nearly impossible to put down.
