Young adult thriller.

Devon and Chiamaka, students at an elite private school, struggle against an anonymous social media bully.

"Every so often a book comes along that perfectly captures the strength and resilience it takes to survive the visceral terror of being a Black person trying to thrive in a society designed to destroy you. Ace of Spades is that book." Roseanne A. Brown, author of A Song Of Wraiths and Ruin

Àbíké-Íyímídé deftly reimagines the prep school thriller in this positively suspenseful takedown of institutional racism, homophobia and classism. ACE OF SPADES manages to empower and infuriate while also being just a whole lot of genre-blending fun." Christina Hammond Reeds, author of The Black Kids

Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé is currently pursuing an MA in Shakespeare Studies from Kings College London. Ace of Spades is her debut novel.
