1920s New York. A teen clairvoyant. An old evil. It has begun…

Evie O’Neill has been exiled from her boring old home town and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City – and she is pos-i-tute-ly thrilled! New York is the city of speak-easies, rent parties, shopping and movie palaces, and soon enough Evie is running with glamorous Ziegfeld girls and rakish pickpockets. The only catch is that 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 it. Even Evie’s new pals – hoofers, numbers runners and activists, but all swell kids – are drawn into 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 …

I first came across this book when a link to the book trailer was posted on Twitter, and since watching it I have decided I need it in my hands, as soon as possible!

    Oh wow this cover is a lot different than the one I’m used to. I wasn’t a fan of her other series but I’m still really into this one it sounds so good!

    Awesome pick! I absolutely love LIbba Bray’s novels and I can’t wait to read more. My favorite so far would have to be Beauty Queens. I love the trailer for this novel! It just makes me want to read it even more. 🙂
