Devin Drake and the Family Secret, a middle grade mystery
Twelve-year-old amateur magician Devin Drake wanders through a cemetery one day and discovers he is a necromancer: one who can communicate with the dead. Soon, everyone at his school knows about it and he is shunned by many as a freak. But when his friend Eva asks for his help, Devin uses magic and his newfound powers to find out why Eva's late grandfather, a famous chef, is trying to communicate with her from beyond. After Eva enters a popular cooking contest, Devin uncovers a long-lost recipe that may help her win, and more importantly, events from the past that may bring her family back together.
