I know my summary wasn't very long, but I think if I made it any longer I would give part of the book away!! Also don't you think the cover is absolutely amazing?? I know I do. It's one of the first things that drew me to the book.
So now my opinon. I LOVED this book. Like I mean I can't believe I haven't read this book before!! Gemma is an amazing character who is incredibly strong. Libba Bray created a host of awesome 3-D characters that made the book a page turner. The plot of the book is all together great and probably the last fourth of the book has so many twists and turns that make the ending phenominal. The story sucks you in from the very first page and leaves you wondering what Gemma will be up to next. I warn you know this book will make you hungry for more! I know I can't wait to read the sequel. A Great and Terrible Beauty is definitely one of my new favorite books and I don't think it will ever come off my list. I cannot get over how amazing this book was. If you haven't had a chance to read it yet go to the library and put a hold on it now, or even go out to the book store and buy it.
