Synopsis

From the bestselling author of The Unadoptables: a stunning adventure about a missing friend, a gothic city, and a secret society full of wonder, invention and maybe a hint of magic . . .

Find the courage to be extraordinary . . .

Ema Vašková has always felt different. In a family of famous scientists, there's not much room for superstition or omens - but they seem to follow Ema wherever she goes. It doesn't help that she appears to predict events before they happen, and has a peculiar fear of shadows . . .

When Ema is sent to stay with her eccentric uncle in Prague, she fears she'll lose the chance to ever fit in. But then she meets Silvie - a girl who finally sees Ema for the extraordinary person that she is. Soon the girls are meeting for secret midnight adventures, and facing Ema's fears together.

But then disaster strikes. Silvie goes missing - and it's up to Ema to find her. Now she must gather the courage to hunt the city, find her friend, and uncover the secrets of the one clue Silvie left as to where she might be - inside the mysterious Midnight Guild . . .

Praise for The Unadoptables:

'A high-speed, witty, absurd and joyful adventure' - Katherine Rundell, author of Rooftoppers and The Explorer

'A corker of a story' - Emma Carroll, author of Letters to the Lighthouse
