Flora Segunda, by Ysabeau S Wilce (Harcourt, 2007)

Flora Fyrdraaca lives with her family – the dwindled remnants of a once-mighty dynasty – in Crackpot Hall, a sprawling magical mansion of impossible size that has likewise fallen into disrepair. When a wrong turn in the house brings Flora into the heart of a dark family secret, she gets involved in a series of wild, unlikely, heart-pounding adventures that could spell doom for her and her family, or restore their fortunes. Only Flora has what it takes to defy everything she’s ever known, discern long-buried truths, and save the day. Flora Segunda is a strange new tale of magical mischief, mayhem and mystery that’s sure to entertain. Wilce has a lovely debut on her hands with this book.
