Eve has grown up in a decidedly unconventional family, one of seven multi-racial children with different fathers and a mother who raises them her own way. It is a family without men, a family of children whose various talents are always at odds with the rest of society. When Eve is eight, her mother Victory calls upon her own special, rarely used talent-second sight, "the ability to harness chance." This rare gift brings Victory forebodings of disaster, but it also wins her first prize in a cereal-box competition. Suddenly the rag-tag family is leaving its trailer home and moving into a brand-new house in a leafy London suburb: The Cornflake House. The consternation among residents at their arrival has comic, then disastrous, consequences. Now Eve is a young woman in trouble. How she got there, and how her amazing mother planned long ago to help her, makes for a dramatic and utterly original novel of family and magic.
