A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray

Posted January 24, 2014 | Posted in Kids Books

In a Victorian boarding school story, sixteen-year-old Gemma Doyle’s unconventional upbringing in India leads her to the day she foresees her mother’s death. Her vision turns out to be true. With her mother gone, her father sends her back to England, and enrolls her at Spence, a girls’ academy with a mysterious burned-out East Wing. Gemma blackmails herself and her dumpy roomate, Ann, into¬† a treacherous clique, lead by Felicity and Pippa. Gemma realizes she’s being followed by Kartik, a beautiful young man from India. Her visions continue, and one night she is led by a child-spirit to discover the secrets of a mystical Order. The clique accompanies Gemma to the other-world realms of her visions and discover that the delights are overwhelmed by a menace they can’t control.
