The Rook, by Daniel O’Malley

This terrific debut novel combines supernaturals with a British spy story for a twisty mystery that propels you through the story. Our wonderful heroine, Myfanway (pronounced Miffany),awakens with amnesia and only a note in her pocket telling her who she is. Let’s just quote the first line of the book: “Dear You, The body you’re wearing used to be mine.” A rollicking good time, filled with people with unusual powers staffing Britian’s secret spy agency, follows. Highly recommended. This is not a YA book, but I think 16 and up would enjoy it.
