Meet Gemma Doyle. She's not your average girl. She's a rebellious redhead living in Victorian England. She and her friends aren't exactly the type of people who sit tight and do as they're told. Nope, they're adventurous dreamers who won't take no for an answer.
I don't recall any particular scene where Gemma was peeking through a crack in a doorway, but it seemed like the kind of thing she would do. After leafing through the books again I found a scene where she hid behind a potted fern so close enough.
The Gemma Doyle Trilogy (A Great and Terrible Beauty, Rebel Angels, and The Sweet Far Thing) was a great series and I had lot of fun reading it a couple years ago. It's filled with scandal, romance, magic, adventure, and pretty much everything you could ever want from a book. I really like Libba Bray in general though. She's a funny and wacky kind of person. Her live journal posts are pretty entertaining, and I really like her other novel, Going Bovine. It was pretty out there,(It's about a boy with mad cow disease who goes on a road trip with a dwarf, a pink-haired angel, and a gnome) but definetly a good read that makes you appreciate life in the end.
Sorry about the watermark by the way, but I'm really paranoid about art theft and I've seen it happen to some really talented people. Better safe then sorry, right?

Yours Truly,
