So the deal is that you’re an orphan and foster kid who has never been able to fit in, in large part due to these psychic fits you have. So instead of being sent back to a girls’ home, you apply to a bunch of boarding schools and not only get accepted to the best of them, but get a full ride. The first, and best, half of the book deals with how you begin to make friends and adjust to being surrounded by wealth and privilege. This would all be hard enough, but from the beginning someone seems to be sabotaging you. And there are hints that the reasons for it are bigger than you or anything you can imagine. But you make a couple of really good, true friends, and they help you figure out what’s going on.
