    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.

    "pros and cons"
    Overall

    I am not a teen reader, I was recommended this book by a friend so i downloaded all the audible titles in the series. I would say that the pros and cons for thses books are about equal.

    Pros:
    Interesting story and good charcter depth
    Good flow from the first book to the last while keeping each book enjoyable in themselves.

    Cons:
    Fairly predictable. Heroine not very likable. By the time you get to the end all you can think is "Surely she must know better by now!"

    All in all I would suggest these books as an enjoyable listen good for a car trip. But you won't be blown away and asking for more.
