A Great and Terrible Beauty series, by Libba Bray [teen fiction]

Reviewed by Jocelyn, 10th grader

A Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, and The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray are three books in a fantastic series. In these books, Gemma makes friends with some unusual people at an old finishing school. She becomes friends with the two most popular girls and they end up using her for the powers she unlocks in herself. She learns of ancient powers her mother and others in her family passed down to her. She finds out that her secret romance is forbidden and her love is used against her. This series is amazing and one of the best books I have ever read.
