Summary

18 year old Scarlett tries to survive and win the mysterious magical game on Caraval in order to save her kidnapped sister

Welcome to Caraval, where nothing is quite what it seems.

Scarlett and Tella have never left the tiny isle of Trisda, pining from afar for the wonder of Caraval, a once-a-year week-long performance where the audience participates in the show.

Caraval is Magic. Mystery. Adventure. And for Scarlett and her beloved sister Tella it represents freedom and an escape from their ruthless, abusive father.

When the sisters' long-awaited invitations to Caraval finally arrive, it seems their dreams have come true. But no sooner have they arrived than Tella vanishes, kidnapped by the show's mastermind organiser, Legend.

Scarlett has been told that everything that happens during Caraval is only an elaborate performance. But nonetheless she quickly becomes enmeshed in a dangerous game of love, magic and heartbreak.

And real or not, she must find Tella before the game is over, and her sister disappears forever.

NOTE : Includes some violence and distressing scenes.

Film rights have been optioned by Twentieth Century Fox

Book of the week

Certainly has its frustrations and flaws but this a remarkable debut that keeps you guessing til literally the last page. Mysterious, slightly sinister psychological fantasy with shades of Lewis Carroll. One to watch.
