Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé (Debut Box)

We are so pleased to announce our first debut box for 2021, featuring Ace of Spades by Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé. This dark academia thriller is masterfully paced and incredibly sinister, all while deftly tackling institutionalised racism. It’s a book we could not put down.

We’re thrilled to say that we will be featuring an exclusive hardback of the UK edition! This debut box will be the only place to get a hardback copy of the book featuring the UK cover. We are hoping (Covid allowing) to get the copies signed, but in the event this cannot be done safely, signed bookplates will be provided instead. 

As well as the book, the box includes an author letter from Faridah, and  a wooden bookmark and enamel pin created by @obohdraws and designed in collaboration with the author!

This box is limited to one per customer.


Orders placed after 1st June will ship in July.  Keep an eye on our Shipping Updates page nearer the time for more details.

Ace of Spades synopsis

When two Niveus Private Academy students, Devon Richards and Chiamaka Adebayo, are selected to be part of the elite school’s senior class prefects, it looks like their year is off to an amazing start. After all, not only does it look great on college applications, but it officially puts each of them in the running for valedictorian, too.

Shortly after the announcement is made, though, someone who goes by Aces begins using anonymous text messages to reveal secrets about the two of them that turn their lives upside down and threaten every aspect of their carefully planned futures.

As Aces shows no sign of stopping, what seemed like a sick prank quickly turns into a dangerous game, with all the cards stacked against them. Can Devon and Chiamaka stop Aces before things become incredibly deadly?
