The Diviners by Libba Bray

The DivinersI absolutely loved this book.  The characters are well written and believable.  The setting is fantastic and almost becomes another, equally important, character.  New York City…in the twenties…speakeasies, flappers, Ziegfeld girls… it has is all with a dash of magic.  I can see why this book is making all the “best of 2012” lists!

Book Description via Amazon
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.
