Synopsis: It's 1895, and after the suicide of her mother, 16-year-old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from the life she knows in India to Spence, a proper boarding school in England. Lonely, guilt-ridden, and prone to visions of the future that have an uncomfortable habit of coming true, Gemma's reception there is a chilly one. To make things worse, she's been followed by a mysterious young Indian man, a man sent to watch her. But why? What is her destiny? And what will her entanglement with Spence's most powerful girls -- and their foray into the spiritual world -- lead to?
Yawn. Ive heard great things about this book but they must have been simply talking about the plot. Because the book itself was slow. It took me forever to plow through it. Now maybe its me. But then again my friends have had trouble reading this book also. Dont get me wrong once I murdered the first half of the book *the hardest part to get through in my opinion* it was easy to skip through the rest of it. It was an interesting story, but really? Did it have to spend so much just talking about needless things? It got confusing with the whole suicide/killed by monster thing. *sighs* I am going to read the sequel but will I regret it?
