Here's a description of The Diviners: Evie O'Neill has been exiled from her boring Ohio hometown and shipped off to the bustling streets of New York City--and she is thrilled. New York in the Prohibition era 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. Packed with hilarious 1920s slang, snappy one-liners, a host of amazing supernatural powers and one creepy-as-can-be killer on the loose.
