The Southern Schools Book Award was created to recognise the fantastic Young Adult books that are published every year, and to give students the chance to have their say on which is the best.
Maeve Chambers doesn't have much going for her.
Not only does she feel like the sole idiot in a family of geniuses, she managed to drive away her best friend Lily a year ago.
But when she finds a pack of dusty old tarot cards at school, and begins to give scarily accurate readings to the girls in her class, she realizes she's found her gift at last.
Things are looking up - until she discovers a strange card in the deck that definitely shouldn't be there. And two days after she convinces her ex-best friend to have a reading, Lily disappears. Can Maeve, her new friend Fiona and Lily's brother Roe find her? And will Maeve's new gift be enough to bring Lily back, before she's gone for good?
A gripping, dark, supernatural teen story with a great cast of characters.
