Books to Look For
The Diviners by Libba Bray YA FIC
After party girl Evie disgraces her family back home in small town Ohio, she is sent to stay with her uncle Will, who owns an almost bankrupt museum of the paranormal and the occult. Seventeen and living in exciting New York City? Nightclubs, parties, all the latest fashions? If this is punishment, Evie is ready for it!
Soon after she arrives, gruesome murders begin to happen all over the city. The police are baffled, and because of the bizarre nature of the crimes, turn to her uncle for help. Evie is desperate to assist with the investigations, but she is hiding a secret of her own, a strange power that has gotten her into trouble in the past. Still, as sinister forces threaten to unleash an ancient unspeakable evil on the world, Evie knows she must confide in her uncle to help solve the riddle and find the key to stopping the “Pentagram Killer” before it's too late. This exciting book, set amid the political and social turmoil of 1920’s New York, mixes flappers, numbers runners, strange religious cults, Ziegfield girls, and even a bit of steampunk for a perfect page-turning summer read.
