The Leaf Reader

(2017)
A novel by

 

"A taut, deftly written thriller...Emily Arsenault is a YA writer to watch!."
Meg Cabot


Like a contemporary take on Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle, Marnie Wells comes face-to-face with the occult, discovering she can tell the future by reading tea leaves.

Marnie Wells knows that she creeps people out. It's not her fault: her parents are out of the picture, her brother is always in trouble, and her grandmother is happy being the town eccentric. So when Marnie stumbles upon an old tea-leaf reading book, she decides on a whim to start telling fortunes. The strange rituals prove seductive to the kids at school, opening windows into their lives. But none of it is real. Obviously.

Then basketball star Matt Cotrell asks for a reading. His best friend, Andrea Quinley, has been missing and presumed dead for months, and now someone claiming to be Andrea is sending him emails. Marnie has heard rumors that he and Andrea were secretly a couple. A faint cloud of suspicion still hangs over him. But soon Marnie comes to see a kindred spirit: someone who, like her, is damaged by association.

But as Marnie's attraction to Matt grows, her readings take a sinister turn. The message in the leaves is clear: the new boy in her life is dangerous, perhaps even deadly.
