Waterstones Says

Buried secrets burst into the open at an exclusive high school in this explosive thriller which doubles as a blistering critique of institutionalised racism.

A compelling, incendiary, and unputdownable thriller with a shocking twist, Faridah Abike-Iyimide delves deep into the heart of institutionalized racism with this compulsive debut.

Hello, Niveus High. It's me. Who am I? That's not important. All you need to know is...I'm here to divide and conquer. - Aces

Welcome to Niveus Private Academy, where money paves the hallways, and the students are never less than perfect. Until now. Because anonymous texter, Aces, is bringing two students' dark secrets to light.

Talented musician Devon buries himself in rehearsals, but he can't escape the spotlight when his private photos go public. Head girl Chiamaka isn't afraid to get what she wants, but soon everyone will know the price she has paid for power.

Someone is out to get them both. Someone who holds all the aces. And they're planning much more than a high-school game...

MEDIA REVIEWS
Ace of Spades is my favourite YA novel in some time! A love letter to Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars... a hugely accomplished debut. * Juno Dawson *
A heart-racing and twisty thriller that grapples so much more than a simple mystery; ACE OF SPADES explores being both queer and Black, and the sinister, destructive nature of white supremacy and racism. * Alice Oseman, author of Heartstopper *
Abike-Iyimide's stunningly brilliant thriller weaves teen drama, thriller, and protest novel in a story like you've never seen before. A complete game changer. * Camryn Garrett, author of Full Disclosure *
This is a phenomenal debut from an absolutely gifted writer. Compelling. Alluring. Shocking. Ace of Spades will have you on the edge of your seat. Faridah Abike-Iyimide is one to watch. * Melissa Cummings-Quarry and Natalie A. Carter, co-founders of The Black Girls Book Club *
The pitch is 'Gossip Girl' meets 'Get Out', and it's every bit as good as that suggested. * The Bookseller Children's Buyer's Guide *
