All Our Hidden Gifts

By Caroline O’Donoghue

A dark and supernatural contemporary teen debut by multi-talented author and journalist Caroline O'Donoghue.

I'll give up the tarot readings. I'll apologize to Lily. But Lily doesn't come to school on Monday. Or Tuesday. It's not until Wednesday that the police show up. Maeve Chambers doesn't have much going for her. Not only does she feel like the sole idiot in a family of geniuses, she managed to drive away her best friend Lily a year ago. But when she finds a pack of dusty old tarot cards at school, and begins to give scarily accurate readings to the girls in her class, she realizes she's found her gift at last. Things are looking up – until she discovers a strange card in the deck that definitely shouldn't be there. And two days after she convinces her ex-best friend to have a reading, Lily disappears. Can Maeve, her new friend Fiona and Lily's brother Roe find her? And will their special talents be enough to bring Lily back, before she's gone for good?

  • The first YA novel from a popular and engaging voice. Caroline is widely known for her excellent, witty writing, and is an superb addition to our list. All Our Hidden Gifts has sold in ten languages and there is also TV interest.
  • A gorgeously written supernatural mystery set in Ireland about friendship, love, guilt, responsibility and sacrifice. This is the first in a series focusing on four protagonists – Maeve, Lily, Roe and Fiona – who each learn that they have a supernatural gift.
  • "Fiercely, furiously good. An utterly seductive read, where the magic bleeds into the familiar." – Melinda Salisbury
