From the Publisher:
Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring old hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is pos-i-toot-ly thrilled. New York is the city of speakeasies, shopping, and movie palaces! Soon enough, Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfield girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is Evie has to live with her Uncle Will, curator of The Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult--also known as "The Museum of the Creepy Crawlies."

When a rash of occult-based murders comes to light, Evie and her uncle are right in the thick of the investigation. And through it all, Evie has a secret: a mysterious power that could help catch the killer--if he doesn't catch her first.
Annotation:
Speakeasies, jazz, Ziegfield girls, and the thrills of 1920s New York City is the backdrop for Libba Bray's decidedly creepy young adult occult thriller. When 17-year-old Evie O'Neill is sent away from home (duller than dull Ohio) to live in New York City with her Uncle Will, she is beyond thrilled to take a bite of the Big Apple. No matter that Uncle Will runs the Museum of American Folklore, aka the "Museum of the Creepy Crawlies," Evie's got much bigger plans. Meeting up with numerous exotic people involved in sordid underbelly transactions and fascinating lifestyles, Evie is in her element. However, when murders involving the occult start happening, Uncle Will takes part in the investigation and includes Evie. The reason Evie was sent away from home is due to a secret ||||||ability and key to unraveling the mystery. This is the first book in the Diviners trilogy.

Praise

"Bray sustains a breathless energy throughout this ambitious series-starter, deftly evoking the exuberance of 1920s city life and the evil lurking beneath it." 09/28/2012

"Not for the faint of heart due to both subject and length, but the intricate plot and magnificently imagined details of character, dialogue and setting take hold and don't let go. Not to be missed." 08/01/2012

"The large cast--a pickpocket with a missing mother, a Ziegfeld girl with Hollywood dreams, a Harlem numbers runner who longs to be a poet--ensures there's plenty to write about in the sequels." 07/30/2012

"[W]isecracking Evie is a likeable, heroine, and all signs point to intriguing complications and more malevolent spirits on the rise in succeeding books." November/December 2012

"The compelling and dramatic supernatural plot explores self-actualization, predestination, the secrets everyone hides, and, of course, good versus evil. An absolutely terrific read and, thankfully, the first in a planned series." September 2012
