A Great and Terrible Beauty

by Libba Bray (YA Audiobook)

Set in the late 1800's, sixteen year old Gemma Doyle is sent to live at a boarding school in England after her mother is murdered. Her family is devastated by the loss, yet, they blind themselves to the dark and mysterious circumstances surrounding her mother's death.

As Gemma begins her new life at school, the mystery follows her in the form of a cloaked man, a ghost girl, and a diary that holds the key to the past and the future. Yet, she still has to try and make friends and fit in among the girls at Spence.

A Great and Terrible Beauty is a fast read full of adventure, magic, and the every day drama surrounding teenage girls. I found it thoroughly enjoyable.
