Doc A Great and Terrible Beauty

A Great and Terrible BeautyIt's 1895 and after the suicide of her mother 16 year old Gemma Doyle is shipped off from This book is what it is a young adult novelThat said it's a very good one You can read the summary on the book's page so I won't go into that hereI loved the juxtaposition of Victorian England colonial India and the fairy world The protagonist doesn't belong in any of them and she recognizes that which sets up the whole story the outsider tries to find her nicheI didn't care for any of the other main characters mostly because I felt that the protagonist Gemma was treading on thin ice by being friends with them I liked Gemma I've read reviews that said she was selfish angry and petty and she can be but what sixteen year old isn't? The friendship between Gemma and the other three girls is based on a desire for freedom as well as the tenuous sharing of secrets I don't think the girls were ever meant to appear as the best of friends even on a good day so the reviews that criticize the friendship being shallow puzzle me I meanwell yeah right?I thought the story flowed really well and had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing it's also a really uick read and I was sorry when it ended as soon as it did The visits to the fairy realm were really a delight to read pure escapism for the characters as well as the reader And not without a dark edgeFinally it was a little racy which I thought was pretty awesome for a YA novel It's hard to write a teenage sexual awakening while so much other stuff is going on especially without being sordid cheesy or flowery Bray does this really well and the male love interest is your typical aloof charming vaguely dangerous devastatingly hot man of few words character I can hear the swoons of teenage girls everywhere Hell even I sighed once or twiceI'm definitely looking forward to reading the next two books in this series
