Gemma, a sixteen-year-old girl, lived with her mother and father in India. After her mother is murdered by some mysterious evil being, Gemma is sent to a finishing school in London. While there, she meets several other girls, all of whom have problems of their own. Most of the girls deal with their own internal pain by not showing it to anyone, and by emotionally tormenting those girls who are weaker than themselves. In spite of this charged atmosphere, a diary that Gemma finds forges bonds between her and some of the other girls. The diary tells of two girls who used to go to that same finishing school. Both girls practiced magic, a fact which interests Gemma because she experiences visions that she's unable to control, even though a mysterious boy named Kartik tells her that her visions are dangerous. Soon, Gemma and the other girls learn magic.
