JUVENILE FICTION / Action & Adventure / General
The Graveyard Book meets Nevermoor in this ghostly tale about two friends, one murder mystery, and a world of intrigue.

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 girl 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…

NO SOPHOMORE NOVEL SLUMP: The Unadoptables hooked early indies readers—it was a Winter/Spring 2020 Kids’ Indies Introduce title as well as a Summer 2020 Kids’ Indie Next List selection. Hana doesn’t disappoint with this lusciously written sophomore novel that packs just as much heart as her debut did. 

UNIQUE SETTING: The Prague period setting is ripe for a slightly macabre, magical adventure, replete with atmospheric graveyards, underground acrobatics, and bicycle repair shop straight of a Tim Burton film.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: As Ema grapples with the accusations that she can talk to ghosts, she’s weighing whether her gifts are real or imagined. Readers will have so much fun guessing if she is really talking to people in the “beyond,” or if her talent is actually imagined.

UNADOPTABLES EASTER EGG: For fans of Hana’s first book, they may pick up that Ema is actually a character who appears many years later in The Unadoptables…and they’ll get to meet a young, heartbroken Thibault in The Midnighters!

Timeless feel + timely and relevant themes = a book that’s as much for right now as it is for many years to come.

This wonderful mystery is filled with twists and turns as Ema searches for her best friend, all the while collecting clues to a murder that may hold the key to where Sylvie is being held. Red herrings and wild goose chases will take readers on an adventure they won’t soon forget.

This is primarily a realistic story, but an eerie ghost element will keep readers guessing and adds an air of the supernatural.

This book is like a Wes Anderson movie—full of immaculately constructed detail and charming touches that create an utterly delightful world.

Hana Tooke was born in Alkmaar, the Netherlands, and now lives in Bath, England, with her family, a cat, and a spider called Spooder Bob. She received her BA in music from Plymouth University and an MA in writing for young people from Bath Spa University. Before becoming a children’s book author, Hana was a singer, a primary school teacher, a cheese seller, and a mad scientist. The Midnighters is her second novel.
