Reason for Reading: I'd read good reviews and it looked like something I'd enjoy
Please tell me that's not going to be part of my birthday dinner this evening.
Recommend: Highly recommened!! I could not put this book down. It is a historical fantasy set in a Victorian girl's boarding school. The fantasy world is compelling and unique. I was stunned by certain twists of the plot and at one point I actually gasped out loud! The main characters are believable in the Victorian setting and are ones the reader becomes emotionally involved with. I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on the next book in the series.
