What is it About?

A American teenage girl has a near death experience at her new London school and life becomes horrifically different .

My Thoughts:

I wasn’t expecting so much fantasy from a Maureen Johnson book  but I thoroughly enjoyed all the mystery and trills. I liked that I really didn’t know where the story was going.  I thought that her third roommate was going to be a bad guy and it ends up going a totally different route with her.
I also hope they bring some the special characters, meaning the ones only certain people can see.

I am definitely interested in where the series will be taken.  It was a fun read better then I thought because I wasn’t thrilled about the Ripper character but it surprised me in the end.

I did not expect the fantasy elements of this book either but I ended up adoring this book. Definitely one of my fave reads and I cannot wait for the sequel!
