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.

Everything I'm about to tell you occurred exactly as I say. And I don't just mean the stuff about "Deadwood" High, and my fight with Carla Santini over the school play. I mean everything. Even the things that seem so totally out of this solar system that you think I must have made them up - like crashing the party after Sidartha's farewell concert in New York - they're true too. And nothing's been exaggerated. Not the teeniest, most subatomic bit. It all happened exactly as I'm telling it. And it starts with the end of the world…
Avalon High, Ellie's new school, is pretty much what she'd expected. There's Lance, the hunky footballer; Jennifer, the cute cheerleader; and Marco, the troublemaker.

But when Will says he thinks he's met Ellie before, things start getting a little weird - a feeling that grows as Ellie discovers the strange bonds that entwine Will, Lance, Jen, Marco, and herself.
