Wish List Wednesday

The Diviners (Diviners, 1) by Libba Bray, September 18, 2012. Published by Little, Brown Book for Young Readers.

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.
Why: The Diviners has actually been on my radar since I first of it last year, but I still haven't had a chance to read it. One of the reasons I'm excited about this one is that it sounds similar to her Gemma Doyle books, which I loved.
