Maeve Chambers doesn't have much going for her. Not only does she feel like the sole idiot in a family of geniuses, she managed to drive away her best friend Lily a year ago. But when she finds a pack of dusty old tarot cards at school, and begins to give scarily accurate readings to the girls in her class, she realizes she's found her gift at last. Things are looking up – until she discovers a strange card in the deck that definitely shouldn't be there. And two days after she convinces her ex-best friend to have a reading, Lily disappears.

Can Maeve, her new friend Fiona and Lily's brother Roe find her? And will their special talents be enough to bring Lily back, before she's gone for good?


Oh wow! A witchcraft story? I'm in! I mean I watched a lot of witchcraft movies but I don't think I have read one like All Our Hidden Gifts.

I am instantly hooked with the story that I read this book in one sitting! Yep! I'm so into the story that I couldn't leave this book hanging, I just need to know what happens next. I like how the author interlaced the story with witchcraft and tarot reading. What makes me even more interested to read is that there is a magical and mysterious element in this story. It was a perfect combination!

It was really an enjoyable read, and unputdownable. The only drawback I have is that I feel annoyed with the main character. She is just so selfish. Beside that, the best thing about this book is that there are unexpected things happen that I didn't expect at all. Admittedly, I was at the tip of my seat towards the end of my read. Overall, love the plot, enjoyable and recommended to you if you're looking for a witchcraft story.
