About the Book:

Gossip Girl meets Get Out in Ace of Spades, a YA contemporary thriller by debut author Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé about two students, Devon & Chiamaka, and their struggles against an anonymous bully.

All you need to know is . . . I’m here to divide and conquer. Like all great tyrants do. —Aces

When two Niveus Private Academy students, Devon Richards and Chiamaka Adebayo, are selected to be part of the elite school’s senior class prefects, it looks like their year is off to an amazing start. After all, not only does it look great on college applications, but it officially puts each of them in the running for valedictorian, too.

Shortly after the announcement is made, though, someone who goes by Aces begins using anonymous text messages to reveal secrets about the two of them that turn their lives upside down and threaten every aspect of their carefully planned futures.

As Aces shows no sign of stopping, what seemed like a sick prank quickly turns into a dangerous game, with all the cards stacked against them. Can Devon and Chiamaka stop Aces before things become incredibly deadly?

With heart-pounding suspense and relevant social commentary comes a high-octane thriller from debut author Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé.

My Review: 

Sign me up!!

Thank you to Feiwel and Friends for providing me with a Sneak Peek Exclusive of Ace of Spades. This is going to be a knock-out book for readers that love drama, thrillers and exciting characters! Just within the first couple of chapters, we are introduced to the snarky, private school popular girls, the brilliant, socially inept, quiet girl and the brilliant artist type student who appears to be squarely in the sights of someone that is ready to wreak havoc through the school.  With these story lines converging and the suspense that is sure to build from here, I think this will be an excellent YA Thriller.

I can’t wait to read this book!
