THE DIVINERS -- an addictive and terrifying story of young New Yorkers investigating a rash of occult-based murders
The Diviners by Libba Bray (2013, Little, Brown Books For Young Readers; 608 pages)
This book is a paranormal historical novel that would be a perfect read to celebrate the spirit of Halloween and the Day of the Dead. The plot follows seventeen-year-old Evie O'Neill, a young girl in the 1920’s, as she helps her uncle Will - curator of the fictional "Museum of American Folklore, Superstition, and the Occult" - uncover the killer behind a mysterious series of murders after a spirit named Naughty John is awakened.
The book has been nominated for an Andre Norton Award for Young Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy as well as a Bram Stoker Award, and was one of the YALSA's picks for "best audiobook of 2012."
Lair of Dreams, the sequel to The Diviners, was released in August of 2015 and is now available at the library!
