Description

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue never sees them--until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks to her. His name is Gansey, a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble. But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul whose emotions range from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher who notices many things but says very little. For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She doesn't believe in true love, and never thought this would be a problem. But as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.

From Publishers Weekly

30 July 2012 – By grounding this new series in what might be called everyday weirdness a rich teenager s obsession with legend and glory, a shabby household of female psychics with a pay-per-minute hotline Stiefvater (The Scorpio Races) avoids the burden of building a seamless alternate world, instead saturating our reality with magic. Haunting, distinctly individual characters are at the forefront: Blue, an outsider in her own home because she isn t clairvoyant; Gansey and his posse of misfits, who lack any sense of home and seek meaning elsewhere; and Barrington Whelk, a Latin teacher with a secret. Gansey and his fellow raven boys attend exclusive Aglionby Academy itself out of place in working-class Henrietta, Va. and Blue s goal is to avoid them at any cost. She can t, of course, but Stiefvater doesn t rush this inevitability. Hopes, fears, quirks, and forebodings gather gradually, coalescing as living portraits. It s a tour de force of characterization, and while there is no lack of event or mystery, it is the way Stiefvater s people live in the reader s imagination that makes this such a memorable read. Ages 13 up.
