** The real BilingualBonus is that ''he sucks''. Stiefvater has mentioned that only two characters in the series actually speak good Latin. [[spoiler:Turns out that the bad Latin is actually [[Foreshadowing a way to tell who and what has been dreamed up by Ronan, and thus speaks it as badly as he does]].]]

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her [[{{Seers}} clairvoyant]] mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her. His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is 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 Gansey is different. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he’s looking for much more. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little. For as long as she can remember, Blue has been told by her psychic family that she will kill her true love. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she’s not so sure anymore.

* WritersCannotDoMath: The timeline is... confusing. Blue is 16 at the start of the series, but then turns 18 a few months later in ''Blue Lily, Lily Blue'' (mentioning that she's "lived eighteen years as the town psychic's daughter"). Also, Gansey apparently came to Henrietta 18 months prior to the start of ''The Raven Boys''. Adam also says he has been friends with Gansey for 18 months. Yet somehow, Gansey was friends with Ronan in Henrietta for months before meeting Adam. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

** Gansey knew Ronan before he moved to Henrietta and is shown to have spent time with him in childhood, so it's likely they met through their parents.
