Avicenna Crowe's mother, Joanne, is an astrologer with uncanny predictive powers and a history of being stalked. Now she is missing. The police are called, but they're not asking the right questions. Like why Joanne lied about her past, and what she saw in her stars that made her so afraid. But Avicenna has inherited her mother's gift. Finding an unlikely ally in the brooding Simon Thorn, she begins to piece together the mystery. And when she uncovers a link between Joanne's disappearance and a cold-case murder, Avicenna is led deep into the city's dark and seedy underbelly, unaware how far she is placing her own life in danger. Pulse-racing and terrifyingly real, The Astrologer's Daughter is a stunning, original novel. It will test your belief in destiny and the endurance of love. Rebecca Lim is a writer and illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia. She worked as a commercial lawyer for several years before leaving to write full time. Rebecca is the author of fifteen books for children and young adult readers, and her novels have been translated into German, French, Turkish, Portuguese and Polish. Teaching notes tailored to the Australian Curriculum are available for this title. 'The Astrologer's Daughter is compulsively readable. Avicenna is a captivating hero - tough yet vulnerable. This gritty and mysterious love story will stay with me for a long time.' Cath Crowley 'Smart and original - a beautifully written mash-up of mystery, thriller and love story.' Vikki Wakefield
