I thought this was an interesting book that was very humorous and imaginative. The characters are very realistic and unique, and they are great assets to the story. Overall, the book is very good, although the ending isn't the best. I would definitely recommend this book to teenage girls who love fantasy!

This book nothing like I expected it to be. The overall plot idea interesting, but the execution was often slow and flimsey. The characters were alright, but not deeply developed. It is an interesting book, but not near one of the best I’ve read.

Gemma Doyle isn't like other girls. She isn't proper, and has visions. Not just plain visions. Disturbing ones. When her mother dies, Gemma is sent to Spence, a boarding school in London, where she's supposed to learn how to be proper, and to become marriageable. Instead, she makes new friends and learns things about her visions that she isn't supposed to, which will endanger her own life and her friends'.

What begins as historical fiction about girls at a British boarding school soon finds them traveling into another realm.
