Gemma Doyle is a regular old teenage girl walking around India with her mom and their maidservant. They are arguing because Gemma really wants to go to London, where all the cool kids are, but her mom doesn't care what the other kids are up to; she said no and she means it. Since Gemma is sixteen, this hard, cold no infuriates her, and she runs away, causing her mother to follow her down an alley. Suddenly Gemma is struck with a strange vision of the future, including her mother killing herself and a demented shadow creature eating a guy um… things officially just got weird, Shmoopsters.
