A Great and Terrible Beauty, by Libba Bray

A somewhat oppressive tale about a group of senior girls at an exclusive prep school who tap into magical powers beyond their control. Gemma, our heroine, struggles with the baggage of a murdered mother, and squabbles with mean girls at school. The story is interesting, but very dark. I may or may not read the sequels. Recommended for 16 and up.
