All Our Hidden Gifts by Carolina O’Donoghue


Maeve’s strangely astute tarot readings make her the talk of the school, until a classmate draws a chilling and unfamiliar card—and then disappears.

After Maeve finds a pack of tarot cards while cleaning out a closet during her in-school suspension, she quickly becomes the most sought-after diviner at St. Bernadette’s Catholic school. But when Maeve’s ex–best friend, Lily, draws an unsettling card called The Housekeeper that Maeve has never seen before, the session devolves into a heated argument that ends with Maeve wishing aloud that Lily would disappear. When Lily isn’t at school the next Monday, Maeve learns her ex-friend has vanished without a trace.

Shunned by her classmates and struggling to preserve a fledgling romance with Lily’s gender-fluid sibling, Roe, Maeve must dig deep into her connection with the cards to search for clues the police cannot find—even if they lead to the terrifying Housekeeper herself. Set in an Irish town where the church’s tight hold has loosened and new freedoms are trying to take root, this sharply contemporary story is witty, gripping, and tinged with mysticism.

My Review:

What if you found a deck of Tarot cards?

Meave is always getting herself into trouble. She is willing to do anything to become popular. Even gets in trouble at school. While cleaning out the chokey, she finds a deck of cards. Meave become a pro at reading them and started a business. Once she reads her ex-friend tarot, she disappeared. Now Meave on a mission to find her with unlikely help.

All Our Hidden Gifts was such a fast pace read. I really did like this book. I’m glad my barnes and nobles chose it for their monthly pick bc this was a first hearing on it. The main character can be selfish at times, but she has regrets on it. I really did like both the storyline and the cover so much. There some high school drama like always at a catholic school. Also this book deals with a bit of racist stuff for the sensitive readers. If you have yet, you should add this book to TBR. Also book two will be coming out soon.

What does the future hold for you?

Happy Reading!!!
